Cawaja weeHouse

Ontario, Canada
This project page was created by community member Alchemy Architects (weeHouse)

Two modules, one horizontal and one vertical, make up this unique weeHouse. At 1200SF, it was designed as a prefab weeHouse prototype using 14′ wide modules that are easily transported. A basement foundation links the separate buildings, while the separate modules complement each other while maintaining their individuality. Privacy and heating efficiency is gained by being able to live-in and/or close-off either module. Built outside of Toronto, this 3 BR, 2 Bath structure is a four-season home used by extended family members year-round. It features stained pine “Corncrib” siding as well as oxidized copper green-painted cementitious “Container” siding. Red pine interiors with copper painted walls, IKEA cabinets, and storefront glazing on Andersen windows complete the esthetic.
