Out along Eagle Bay Road, spring is already in the air, and that means we're breaking ground for a spectacular new custom home on the shores of the Shuswap Lake. As you can see in the elevation drawings below, it's a three-level home with basement, main level and loft, boasting about 2,800 square feet of living space along with generous outdoor spaces, carport and garage.
The style of the home has elements of chalet, craftsman, and post and beam. It will feature a great deal of solid wood beams and rock work, including generous rock-clad posts on the lake side of the home. The outstanding design was created by Peter Manolakas of Manolakas Designs, based in Cochrane, Alberta. We believe the finished product will look absolutely at home in its rugged, pristine surroundings, and take full advantage of the gorgeous views looking northwest across the Shuswap to the mountains beyond.
The photo beneath the plans shows our excavation contractor, George Doyle of D&L Backhoe, clearing the lot and prepping it for foundation excavating and septic field installation. Watch for more updates on this fresh start in the coming weeks.
