    This Douglas fir timberframe home was built using authentic mortise and tenon techniques by Squamish-based British Columbia Timberframe Co. and is also the first in the Sea to Sky Corridor (Vancouver to Whistler, BC) to earn certification within the ENERGY STAR® New Home Initiative in Canada. The home was constructed with “passive home” principals to not only build an energy-efficient home, but to also leverage the most advanced construction technology available to home owners; off-site wall and roof panel system manufacturing. Custom windows soak in the natural light and give way to views of the Chief and various local mountain peaks and valleys; not only from the master bedroom, but also from the open floor concept that spans the kitchen, dining, living and modest art gallery. The beautifully vaulted and 12’ ceilings create a strikingly quaint space that embraces a mid-century modern theme. Three bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 upper and private deck including a covered outdoor area, make it a very comfortable place in which to live and entertain. In floor radiant heat is throughout, and the home is smart wired and equipped with an HRV system. The low maintenance yard backs onto green space.
