A house of lies

Nothing screams cottage country like a big ol’ boathouse, says Zim. But build one at your own risk of frustration
SANDI FALCONER

“MY FAMILY WANTS TO BUILD a new three-bay boathouse, but I’m panicking just thinking about how angry it’ll make our neighbours and how expensive it’ll be to repair every time there’s a flood or ice damage. Are boathouses even worth building?”

About Cottage Life

Dive into this special vintage edition of Cottage Life for a look at the cottage then and now. In this issue we’ll show you the highs, lows, wins, losses, and questionable cottage fashion of days gone by. Want to know what your cottage junk is worth? We explored dusty cupboards and sheds to find out. You’ll meet cottagers who have been going to (and DIYing in) the Thousand Islands for 100 years. We’ll share tips for buying, hauling, storing, and using propane, the super-useful fuel that does more than barbecue your dinner. Do you know a disaffected cottage teen? Or were you one? Take a peek into the mind of a teenager who had to leave the cottage to find it again. We found a cooler that can keep ice frozen for three weeks (but it’s not cheap). You’ll find answers to reader questions about ticks, asbestos shingles, and pressure-treated lumber, and we’ll deliver the fine print on using fireworks at the lake, plans for building a classic wooden marble game, and an easy way to scribe deck boards. Plus, don’t miss fun and delicious updates to your favourite summertime meals, from burgers to s’mores. Get the Aug/Sept 2019 issue of Cottage Life today for a taste of summer at its best!
