Hughes Timber Craft worked with general contractor Rick Rowland of Inside Story Design and Consulting to take this home to lock-up.
Located in the southern gulf islands on British Columbia’s west coast, building on a rocky island required blasting rock to allow for a proper basement and foundation.
Being on an island, every stage of construction needed to be planned carefully. The concrete trucks had to load and unload off of a barge within a window of high tide. As well, we added a retarder in the mix to prolong curing. With no ferry service to the island we brought in all supplies by boat or plane!
Thank you to our talented and hardworking crew, our wonderful clients and everyone else who helped bring this project together!
