This is a timeless classic with state-of-the-art energy performance, incorporating many of the most enduring elements of the Craftsman style but with a modern twist. The construction is notable for its energy efficiency, yielding an impressive Energuide rating of 86 and air-tightness of 2 ach/hr. The owner planned to complete the interior over time, so the garage was customized into one of the nicest workshops I’ve seen. Since the house occupied a fairly tight lot in an urban neighbourhood, we planned exterior spaces for quiet and privacy, with a rain garden designed to make good use of roof runoff. This attractive, classic home will evolve over time to fit its owners perfectly, while offering comfort and energy savings for many years to come.
