A local construction company owner built his own home in the picturesque mountain town of Revelstoke, British Columbia. This 3 bedroom plus den straw bale house was designed with energy-efficiency and mountain views in mind. The building features in-floor heating, a curved window wall, a tall entry with lots of natural light, covered entry and breezeway leading to a garage with suite above. The home was designed for lots of winter snow and hot summers. A very functional home with all that the client wished for in less than 1500 square feet — the minimum allowed for this new subdivision.
