“We highly recommend Design Alternatives.  Greg and his team of professionals impressed us immensely.  From the permit / foundation start to cottage completion, Design Alternatives made our dream cottage build 100% outstanding.  Their attention to detail and high quality standards made our entire experience satisfying and enjoyable”     Natalie & Greg 


“Built Our Dream…

We had Design Alternatives build a new cottage for us and we were more than pleased with the experience. Initially we thought we might add onto the original cottage but ended up demolishing and going with a new build. The end result is a better building that our whole family enjoys.  Greg and his team were exceptional to work with and have been supportive since the build was completed.  We would not hesitate to recommend them as your build team”     Linda Wood


“We recently built a 4 season cottage north of Buckhorn and spent over 6 months meeting with potential contractors before deciding to move ahead with Greg Lawson’s team at Design Alternatives. Greg was incredibly flexible and immediately built a great rapport with us and our architect. Working with someone local came with many advantages including knowledge of the local building rules, building for weather and many other factors that benefited us greatly throughout the project. Our cottage was completed in 2017 and we are still thrilled every time we arrive at the cottage. Greg and his team did a beautiful job with every detail and still pop by every once in a while to check on us and their creation”     Robin Axon


“Greg and the DA team built our cottage to be ready for spring 2014.  It was a zero stress experience, professional in every way and the quality of the build is exceptional.  Six years later we remain thrilled with the build!”     Bruce Empringham


“Greg Lawson and his crew at Design Alternatives built my family a beautiful cottage on Pencil Lake in the Kawarthas- on time and on budget.  Very pleased indeed”      Robert Adler
