The construction of the project was carefully planned using prefabricated parts, separately raised on site, all the interior and exterior cladding were built in situ only with battery powered tools constructed with 1-2 person building team.
Maximizing a small 2.5m x 2.5m foot print, the floor is split into two levels, an entrance area with an alcove with woodburning stove and a raised main floor level which houses a bed under a removable plywood floor. The eave of the roof returns into the interior as a ledge of polycarbonate soffit and plywood table area.
The building materials include, cork as insulation and exposed wall cladding locally sourced Western Red Cedar cladding, Douglas fir primary structure and reclaimed glazing and telegraph poles as the base structure.
