Scots design gurus Colin and Justin spend night in freezing van after power cut at Canadian hotel


Property entrepreneurs Colin and Justin spent the night in the freezing cold after a power cut at their Canadian hotel.

The design gurus are currently renovating their Nova Scotia property and were forced to kip in their van during -14 temperatures after disaster struck.

The couple initially thought they could get away with using some scented candles they’d bought to light up the Louisbourg venue during the outage.

But they soon realized they couldn’t stay inside as the power cut went on for 26 hours, with the temperature inside dropping to -3.

Sharing a picture of themselves with their laptop inside their Ford F150 truck, Justin told fans: “This is where Colin and I have been working for the last three hours: inside our #F150.

“We’ve had a 26 hour power outage (thus far) and an advisory that says it won’t be back on until this time tomorrow evening.

“WTF?! It’s minus 14 outside. Minus 3 in our living room.

“But hey: it’s TOTALLY toasty in the truck.

“So we’re literally gonna spend the night in here. Where it’s warm. We have emails to send. Documents to prepare. Furniture ordering to continue.

“Metaphorical fires (sadly not real ones) to put out. Work has to continue, regardless of Mother Nature’s chillier arsenal.”

The couple, who recently bought their Ford truck, added: “The team at @colbourne_ford told us our gray toned big guy would be a problem solver, but we didn’t expect it to become our shelter from the ice storm.

“Now if you’ll excuse us: we have two cats to collect from our frigid home. And cold sandwiches to make. Blankets to bundle. We HAVE to stay warm.

“And we’ll stay wide awake. Does anyone have any tips to help allay the torpedoing temperatures? And come on – keep it clean, peeps. Keep it clean…”

The Scots born talents recently purchased the Point of View Suites, a five-acre resort on the Atlantic coast near the famed Fortress of Louisbourg.

They plan to call it North Star and it will include 20 suites, two restaurants, a laundromat, beach house, and lobster shack.

Recently we reported the pair were red-faced when they freak weather conditions in Canada ended up freezing their door lock within seconds when they popped out with the rubbish – meaning they couldn’t get back in.

The pair posted on their Instagram page to tell fans of their dismay, saying: “Just spent a jolly 40 minutes outside trying to get back into the house, the locks of which were frozen due to salty -20 ocean winds.

“Fortunately our electrician John arrived on site with a loosening can of lock de-icer.”

“Note to selfs: Never put the garbage out in sub zero temperatures, wearing Deputy Dawg Pajamas and Garfield slippers.

“Even the friendly local fox looked askance as we tussled with the frozen portal.”
