Thyme Design is a Muskoka based design firm that supplies complete planning and design services for residential construction projects. Providing inspired and lasting solutions, we design homes and cottages that best reflect the owners that live in them. Our priority is to create healthy living spaces using sustainable building practices.


Providing a full range of services and options, we are equipped to successfully achieve high-performance building designs that promote enduring results.


We plan builds that have a deep sense of purpose. A forward-thinking approach is used to develop a strategy and system to fulfill the project deliverables. Client needs sustainably supported direct the process.


We design spaces that are conducive to efficient and healthy living. Interior and exterior environmental considerations coupled with green building material choices drive decisions. Every day living requirements inspire final selections.


We manage building activities to assist with the construction process. Variable levels of involvement are available to simplify client responsibilities. Uncomplicating projects and producing results on time and in budget are the primary concern.


We consult on projects from concept to completion. Solutions are provided to ensure project function and integrity are maintained. Direction is provided referencing the expansive building and design knowledge and experience available.
