Tucked between existing trees and clad in stained wood, a new entry and glazed sitting room open onto a cedar deck and flagstone terrace under generous overhangs. Gym and sauna are accessed by a cherry stair adjacent the horizontal window. A low stone wall extends from the foundation to support the owner’s Kevlar canoe, forming a screen to the neighbouring yard. Heated by a soapstone wood stove and hydronic floor slabs. Storm water is collected to a concrete cistern for garden irrigation.
