We’re making excellent progress at one of our current projects, located on the North Shore in St. Ives. Late last fall, we started this job by tearing down an existing home on the beautiful lakefront lot. Construction of the new home started with an insulated concrete form (ICF) foundation, and now we’re well into the framing stages.
As you can in the photos below, we landed the posts, beams and trusses this week, utilizing a crane for some of the larger lifts. All the posts and beams have been supplied from Canadian Timberframes, located in Parson, just southeast of Golden. The company is renowned for its timber frame components and structures, doing business throughout North America.
As with most of our West Coast style homes, this one will make extensive use of glass to take advantage of the stunning views of the Shuswap Lake.
If the weather cooperates, we’ll be in a position to lock this home up within a month, or earlier. Our goal is to ensure that our clients will be able to enjoy their home at some point this fall. Watch for future updates, as this home will incorporate some beautiful and trend-setting features.
