The materials and aesthetic of the Great Lakes Cabin take cues from the environment of the landscape of the Canadian Shield, Ontario Cottage Country, and the Great Lakes Region of North America. The compact structure is crafted to have a minimal environmental impact on the site. Every square inch of its 700 square foot footprint is utilized – featuring a lofted sleeping area, a full bathroom, and covered exterior decks at front and back entries. The structural system is comprised of a sustainably harvested engineered glulam timber frame, clad with prefabricated insulated wall/roof/floor panels. The envelope system can be customized to meet Net Zero and Passive House standards.
