This cottage will have very cold and very hot conditions. Lows down to -30C and highs to 30C.

I appreciate all the feedback folks! Keep it coming
Dealing with cold is easy, dealing with both hot and cold can be a problem.
Do you intend to live there in both winter and summer?
Are those windows double glazed? And if so how wide is the space between the glass. How many square feet of window do you have?
Are the window frames aluminium, plastic or wood?
What is the floor made of? Is there a space under?
What are the walls made of?

Ok, the cottage will be a year round spot.... Very little in winter. Just a couple ice fishing/snow mobile trips. Mainly a summer spot.

The windows will be replaced with new ones over time. The are aluminum framed.

The subfloor is ply wood and it's carpeted. Insulated underneath as its off ground construction.

The walls are plywood with foam board insulation.

Here's a pic of the side just so you have an idea
