Bowen Island New Build that Features Amazing Views

This is a modest 3 bedroom home built for a couple of recent empty nesters. With that in mind, they have made the 2 extra bedroom multi functional so that when the kids do come and visit they have somewhere to stay, but they will be used as a office and a gym in the interim.

Prime view lot and southern orientation made it easy to achieve BC Energy Step Code 4. The large south facing window will provide for bright interior spaces and solar heat gains to reduce heating demands in the winter. The owners wanted to limit as much impact on the surrounding environment so most of the building will be built on posts. Another cool feature is that the same materials are being used internally and externally to help blur the line between inside and out. They also planning on installing a rainwater harvesting system with the majority of that water being used for their garden and outside needs instead of using potable water.
