Pia Road Carriage House

Date: 2017-2018

Location: Squamish

The clients for this project came to us not knowing exactly what they were looking for. The design started with a small carport addition to the side of an existing two-car garage/ carriage house. After spending some time and going over how the family used the main house and existing space, it became apparent that they needed a carport and additional space for the family to host and entertain and much-needed storage. We revised the plans several times before construction began to ensure we were building exactly what they were after. The existing home and garage were initially built to a very high standard, and the addition and renovation had to match.

No detail was overlooked during this project. We had to take down a large cedar tree to make room for the addition, which we milled up on-site and dried in slabs to be used later in the project. Special attention was given to soundproofing the building as much as possible with laminated glass windows, extra layers of drywall and additional Rockwool insulation throughout. This worked well with a significant focus on an incredibly efficient envelope throughout the project’s new and old parts. A beautiful bath and sauna, complete with a custom Japanese style soaker tub, was built on the lower floor and connected to a new guest room.

The cedar slabs from the tree were used for the tub and a bench in the games room upstairs, and a custom wet bar was designed and built for the games room. The building has a very west coast feel to it with vertical grain Fir throughout the interior and Cedar on the exterior. This project was a favourite for our team. Everyone seized the opportunity to showcase their carpentry and finishing skills, truly demonstrating critical attention to detail necessary for a project like this.
