Dream Cottage on Catchacoma Lake
This extremely challenging cottage on Catchacoma Lake purposely avoided conventional foundations through the use of a steel sub-frame to allow for direct attachment to the side of a cliff. All materials were brought across a frozen over lake and up the side of a cliff with the aid of a marine railway. Despite its remote location this cottage was fully insulated and treated as a 4-season home. Due to the sheer cliff on site, the floor plan was stepped up into a split-level format allowing access to the top of the cliff through the rear of the upper-level.
