Exterior of custom build home in forest

Lyoness Cabin

Salt Spring Island, British Columbia

The architect-engineer owners designed this cabin to have a light touch on the forest. A custom steel and concrete foundation system suspends the house above grade to avoid disrupting the native soil, slope and flora. The few trees that were removed were carefully selected following consultation with the Salt Spring Island Conservancy which manages adjacent conservation lands. The compact cabin features birch plywood interior finishes and built-in storage for durability and a contemporary aesthetic. The exterior siding and colour were selected to blend in with the trees.
