CANADIAN HOME TRENDS CAN YOU TALK ABOUT THE HOME’S DESIGN AND LAYOUT?
ANDY KOBERWITZ This home was designed to take advantage of the amazing views of Agamemnon Channel. It carries the signature style that West Coast Log Homes are recognized for worldwide with unique craftsmanship and distinctive design. Using whole Western Red Cedar logs, the home was handcrafted using precision joinery for immense strength and natural beauty. Dakota Ridge Builders, our construction contracting company, completed the finishing of the home.
CHT CAN YOU TALK ABOUT WHAT INSPIRED THE OVERALL DESIGN?
AK The owners wanted the design to lend itself well to hosting indoor/outdoor summer parties. Tall kitchen windows open the full length of the kitchen to expose the area to the deck. This allows the hosts to prepare delightful meals while easily chatting with guests on the patio. Downstairs, the floor to ceiling doors open the entire length of the wall. This provides for an easy flow from the great room to the patio and infinity pool beyond.
CHT WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT IN THIS SPACE?
AK Every wing of the home takes in amazing views. One can admire the sunset, keep an eye on the kids in the pool or simply watch kayakers glide past from one of the many decks or windows.
