This Cape Breton summer home consists of three separate wings connected by a central bridge - the shared central wing containing the entry and the homeowner's office or central headquarters, the public wing which houses the kitchen, living, and guest room, and the private wing with the master bedroom and bunkroom for the children. Each wing opens up to the lake views which are framed by large floor-to-ceiling hand-crafted wood windows. The project was panelized in order to speed up construction time and to limit the amount of time that the structure was exposed to the elements. The wall panels consist of staggered 2x4 studs on a 2x8 plate which eliminates thermal bridging and maximizes energy efficiency.
