Elora Craftsman at The Lake

This video by CedarCoast Timber Homes highlights a recent project in Muskoka Ontario.  We worked directly with the owners to design custom light fixtures for the great room, kitchen and dining area. 

We also hand-forged mantle straps, hangers and fireplace tools for this vacation home.
