We are delighted that The Boathouse is shortlisted for the 2021 Structural Timber Awards in the Private Housing Project of the year category.
Everything in the house above ground is made of timber supplied by Stones Marine Timber, sourced in Canada. The beams were felled on Vancouver Island and then shipped to the UK. Client’s expertise, built up thanks to the family boatmaking firm, meant that the best quality wood featured strongly in the build. Yellow cedar tiles and cladding adorn the roof and exterior, while the upstairs floor is made of Douglas fir. The long, straight grain of the wood has been deliberately exposed at all levels to show off its beauty.
