|Building Type:||Single Family Residential|
|Year of Construction:||2018|
A future place to which the Owners intend to retire, this passive house quality home is designed also to serve presently as a low-operating cost retreat from which the family can enjoy hiking, skiing and other outdoor pursuits in their immediate surrounds. Owing to the two owners’ different upbringings, the design combines an Australian outback vernacular styling with Ontario post-war bungalow elements. Owner and Evolve collaborated with one another to identify both the best-value finishes and equipment but also to determine ideal opportunities for Owner sweat-equity to further reduce cost and for the Owner simply to impart more of themselves in the project.
