Building on a small island can be challenging—but we knew we were up for the task.
Our clients came to us with plans to build their dream home on a property they purchased on Bowen Island. Getting materials in and out of the property was a difficult because the only road we had access to was a steep’ 4×4’ road. The terrain, where the home would be built, was precarious as well—but after careful planning and smart execution, things fell into place. We built a 2,000 sq. ft. modern farmhouse design (a design that is becoming very popular) with a galvanized aluminum roof.
Dark, reverse board and batten cedar siding gives the exterior a modern-country feel while the raw steel framing around the windows adds an industrial vibe. Our clients (owners of Union Wood Co.) added recycled timbe
r beams to the ceiling rafters as well as providing custom millwork throughout the home. The windows (approved for Passive Home design) were acquired from Cascadia Windows. Working with our industry friends from Union Wood Co. to create their dream home was an incredibly special experience.
