Mill Creek House VI

Our clients' wish was to create a house that would contribute to the modernizing trend in Old Strathcona and give them a space uniquely suited to their needs. The plan is one open space through the main floor with 12 foot high glass walls facing the garden to the south rear yard. The second floor is devoted to a single bedroom suite and a large balcony accessed directly from the staircase and served by a dumb waiter. All exterior walls are double stud with 12 inches of cellulose insulation, and windows are triple-glazed fibreglass. At 1678 square feet the house will fits comfortably into this neighbourhood of 33 foot lots while achieving a very high level of energy efficiency, Energuide 86, and modern style.
