1st 2nd 3rd
Glen Echo Cabin
This Glen Echo cabin in Toronto, Ontario complements its natural setting, adding style and appeal to the customer’s backyard. The Cedar Channel Rough siding gives this design a rustic, yet sleek look, making this cabin the perfect outdoor oasis. The addition of the colourful Adirondack chairs gives the cabin character!
Verana Garden Shed
Located in an Oakville, Ontario residence, this Verana garden shed has a simple, contemporary design. The soft grey colouring is a lovely choice for a shed that is meant to beautify, not overpower, its natural surroundings. The frosted glass and flat roof give the shed a modern edge. The product looks gorgeous surrounded by flowers.
Sonoma Pool House
This Sonoma pool house in Ajax, Ontario, is much more than just a practical place to dry off and change after a refreshing dip in the pool. Its unique design looks absolutely gorgeous in this customer’s backyard. This expansive design provides a private indoor changing space as well as an inviting shaded area – the perfect place to sit and enjoy the beautiful view of this customer’s backyard.

Honorable Mentions  (Click photos for more info)

Every year, when we're debating the winning photographs, the fur flies at Summerwood. You can see why. All of these pictures are artful and evocative. So much is worth celebrating, from the well-considered angles, color and lighting of the photos to the surprising finishing touches on the designs.

Thank you to all who participated. If you redecorate, please forward more photos. We love getting them!
