Carriage House Custom Design develops three season sun room concept to offer comfort to baby boomers seeking refuge outdoors during colder weather.

Carriage House Custom Design ( is a family owned business located in Haliburton County that has been offering quality custom construction solutions for their clients for almost twenty years. Throughout this time, they have realized that baby boomers are enhancing their quality of life by making their homes more comfortable, where many are moving away from the city centres into rural areas where the pace is less chaotic and where they can be close to nature.

Areas such as Haliburton and Muskoka, traditionally summer resort communities, have seen a surge in their year round populations, and many Boomers with cottages are selling their city homes and are moving up to their cottages to live full time. Some Boomers, who are not cottage owners, are buying up existing cottages and renovating them to suit their lifestyle, or they purchase land and build a custom home from scratch. Carriage House Custom Design has capitalized on the trend toward home construction, cottage construction and cottage restoration, and for the businesses that supply building and renovation materials by providing a quick, cost effective solution to custom home building.

With retirement, the Boomers now have the time to entertain both family and friends and they want to do it in style. Carriage House Custom Design understands that baby boomers expect all the quality and comfort that they enjoyed in their city homes to be built into their rural retirement homes, but they don't necessarily want the hassle that is usually associated with construction and renovation projects. In addition, they have a clear understanding that baby boomers generally have a concern for how long things of this nature take. Generally, Boomers want things done quickly, and normally, quality custom homebuilding and renovations take time.

The owner of Carriage House Custom Design, Sally Teasdel, has seen a tremendous growth in their business over the last few years. Their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and skilled craftsman specialize in log, frame, and post and beam custom home construction as well as custom cabinetry, bars, staircases and doors. To help meet the needs and desires of baby boomers, they have developed an extremely popular concept of the three season room--the Haliburton Roomâ„¢.

The screened rooms, or summer rooms, are three season sun rooms that allow people to enjoy all the benefits of being outdoors while being protected from the elements. In the city, a screen room can provide much needed privacy in backyard terraces. In the country, screened gazebos or outdoor screen rooms offer protection from hungry insects. What makes Carriage House's Haliburton Rooms different from any other, and so desirable to Boomers, is that each screen room or gazebo is crafted from Western red cedar and is assembled in modules so that it can be installed in a matter of hours, without any of the muss or fuss associated with regular renovations or constructions.

The concept of Haliburton Rooms affordably adds extra living space as well as beauty and added value to any home. Carriage House Custom Design has stepped above what traditional screen room and gazebo manufacturers offer because the Haliburton Rooms can be located on decks, docks, balconies or rooftops, almost anywhere. In addition, these custom sun rooms and screen rooms can be crafted to the client's specifications and to any dimensions desired; thus, offering baby boomers, or any client, the ease, timeliness, and cost-effective solution to expanding their living space.

The Boomers exodus from the cities to rural areas is a movement that will continue for years to come. The benefits of this trend will continue to be reaped by trades people and merchants in the rural communities that welcome them and provide all the comforts and conveniences that this generation expects.

Carriage House is a family run business which has happily served the Haliburton/Muskoka region since 1988. We have the latest in woodworking equipment and highly skilled craftspeople, building custom cabinetry, bars, stairs & doors. Whether the home you are looking for is log, frame or post & beam, our designer will develop a functional and pleasing space for you and your family. Please visit for more information.
