This 8,000 sq.ft. house reclines gracefully on a gentle granite slope at the water's edge of West Vancouver. The 12" x 12" Douglas Fir posts and beams that constitute the structural system are hand-finished and jointed with precision and craftsmanship. The fir is complemented with granite walls and floors, fir, zinc and sandblasted glass millwork and fixtures. The finished composition, complete with pools, granite patios and indigenous landscaping, reflects the owner's sophisticated conservatism.
