Salt Spring Island

Peaceful Getaway

Based on our Peregrine Family of stock plans, this guest house built on Salt Spring Island, features a modest footprint of 830 square feet with the enticement of outdoor living. A large central skylight, triple pane patio doors, and generous decking allow for spacious outdoor living. Major spaces are open to and radiate around the central skylit living room. A meditation corner and small office space complete this "little/big" house. 

With hand crafted upper shelving and a generous wrap around counter, the kitchen is open to the living room. The large East facing window bank affords beautiful views. The living room features an open plan with a 14' x 14' skylit rice paper and cedar ceiling mandala. The dining nook is right off the kitchen with a South-facing sun bump which provides passive solar gain and a wide stone sill for plants and built-in window seating. A cozy bed nook with full extension storage drawers opens to a walk in dressing area, closet and a spacious bath with a master tub.
