Lake of the Woods Island Decks, Docks and Cabins


Do you have a cottage at Lake of the Woods (Kenora, ON area) and want to add a great deck, boardwalk, stairway, cabin,  or dock?

Wouldn’t it be great to have your project built and finished during the winter so you can start prime cottage season enjoying your new deck, dock, garage, etc.?

Some cabins out in Lake of the Woods are situated on clay soil.  Clay soils expand and contract with changes in temperature and moisture levels, this results in movement and compromises the integrity of any structure built without a deep anchored foundation.

One of the greatest features of Lake of the Woods is it’s multitude of secluded cottages built on islands which are only accessible by barge or winter ice road.  The easiest time of year to get materials and equipment out to a cabin on an island is by winter ice road.  The perceived problem is that you can’t build when the ground is frozen.  This is where Postech Winnipeg Screw Piles comes to the table with a solution.  Postech Winnipeg is equipped to install screw pile foundations regardless of whether or not the ground is frozen or thawed.

Postech Winnipeg’s proprietary ground thawing rod will create summer like soil in matter of minutes, allowing for effective winter screw pile installations.


Because the building industry generally slows down during the winter, so does the demand for screw pile installations.  Our team isn’t the type that is happy to kick up our feet and go into hibernation, we want to be busy doing what we love to do.  We want to earn the right to take satisfaction in kicking up our feet in the evening!

We also happen to know some contractors who’s desire to work despite a drop in temperature is high.  They also happen to be very good at building decks, boardwalks, stairways, ramps, garages, sheds, cabins, etc.  This means that Postech Winnipeg Screw Piles can bring a team to your island cottage project that will provide a turnkey solution and that will complete the work when it most makes sense to do so – in the winter months!
