Amongst The Arbutus

Sidney Island, British Columbia, Canada

This was the first of 4 projects that Kettle River Timberworks has done on Sidney Island with builder Rick Rowland. This home started with a 400 sq. ft. ‘prototype’ cabin. The clients wisely chose to build this scaled-down version prior to building the ‘real deal’. The prototype allowed them to fine tune their design decisions and provided them with a comfortable abode during construction of the final version. Both the prototype cabin and the final home nestle discretely in the hemlock and arbutus forest. The simple, clean lines of the timberwork tie in seamlessly with the built-in cabinetry and trimwork.
