"Nothing burns like
THE COLD."
            ~  George R. Martin
                   

These family homes are  designed to be in context with the local community vernacular, respond to an extreme cold climate, and at the same time provide a distinct identity complementing the unique forest setting. Steep sloping roofs with main gables facing the access road are a dominant architectural feature. The homes, designed to accommodate extended families, have vaulted living room and upper bedroom ceilings and semi finished basements for future bedrooms.  They make extensive use of natural materials including wood siding and timbers.

  • Super green envelopes, arctic entries
  • Built-in flexibility to accommodate growing families
  • Energy efficient design—double strapped R36+ walls, triple & quad glazed windows,
    R60-R80 Roofs, R20-R40 underslab insulation
  • Use of local & durable materials
  • Self Construction
