Inspired by the classic good looks of traditional summer cabins and camps throughout eastern North America, the RavenHouse NorthEast’s soaring cathedral ceilings, fantastic acoustics, and ample natural daylighting will sooth and recharge you in a rare way. With over 760 square feet of main floor space and 120 square feet of combined loft space, it is just the right size for hosting short-term rental guests, or for your own weekend getaway.

In a blend of old and new, familiar and unconventional, the form is classic but the functionality and comfort are up to date; the large, modern, expanses of insulated glass maximize interior light - and provide amazing views of the surrounding scenery.

Extra-thick walls ensure comfort and sustainability throughout the year, and the steeply sloped roof is at an ideal angle for solar panels. The undivided double height space allows the interior areas to connect and borrow space from one another. For example, the bed loft would feel cramped if it were fully enclosed; the open volume also makes the living area below feel much larger.

Whether cooking for two or an extra four overnight guests, the kitchen is both generous and efficient, with room for full-sized appliances.

The large 3-piece bathroom, with laundry, is bright and warm, its lower ceiling adding to its cosiness.

The bedroom’s upper-level loft space is bathed in sunshine and cool summer breezes through the big, operable skylight, perfect as a reading nook or office, yoga space or overflow sleeping.

22 page drawing set includes elevation views, section views, plan views, framing details, window and door schedules, interior and exterior full colour renders, woodstove detail, interior and exterior wall details, and more.
