Located near the Brentwood Bay Marina, the original house dates back to the late 1970s or early 80s. Designed around a south-facing roof, the original build demonstrated the new heating technology of the time. With the roof being such an important part of the design, creative layout for the rest of the house took a back seat.For this reason, the custom home renovations undertaken during this project required much structural engineering. We worked with Sandy Nygaard of Nygaard Interior Design and Keith Baker of KB Design. East Bay Developments designed reverse dormers, which opened up the space within the building, placing the outlook towards the water. Massive windows manufactured by Loewen form the walls of the living and kitchen areas, taking floor-to-ceiling advantage of this unique location and the views across the marina.We modernized the whole house with new beam work, opening up most of the house to the rafters, and undertook all millwork. A loft above the master bedroom created additional space, while the master bedroom itself enjoys spectacular views across the water.Externally, a custom made front door and entryway make a grand, welcoming entrance, and the entire building is finished in mitered cedar siding.Throughout the interior, in-floor radiant heating complements new wood and tile floors, with all interior doors replaced as well as two fireplaces. Marine details, such as porthole windows, maintain the waterfront theme while also adding character to the building.
