the NorthWest


-Fully insulated

-Can be built on any type of foundation

-Overall footprint: 43’ x 35’

Inspired by the spirit of freedom, adventure and the dramatic landscapes of the west, the NorthWest is superbly versatile, equally at home in a mountain valley, a desert plateau or on a forested lake-view site. Weekend getaways will never be the same, for you, or short-term rental guests.

Sharing the same open floor plan and simple-to-build high-efficiency structure of the NorthEast, the sweeping roofline of the NorthWest is more adventurous feeling, leading your eye upward toward big skies and wide vistas, ideal for sites with long views.

Designed for natural, low maintenance finishes, the interior spaces are open and expansive-feeling, despite its quite modest proportions.

Two eight-foot wide glass doors and two big skylights provide the central living space with natural light and views to the sky and land around you. 

The bedroom’s long, gently sloped cathedral ceiling gives the loft space a sublime feeling, like being up in a fire lookout, with windows all around, complete with its big, operable skylight for fresh air and stargazing.

21 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.
