House Swap!

What happens when you need a modern house, but have a beautiful old cabin on your property that’s still in good repair and, more importantly, has a permanent place in your heart? You do as one of our new clients are doing: move the old cabin to a new location on your property, and build a new home on the original location.

In a first for Copper Island Fine Homes, we’re in the process of moving our clients’ existing cabin to a new site on their Celista property, where it can be continue to be enjoyed as a casita or guest accommodation, and then commencing construction of a beautiful new and modern home on the orignal home site. In the left photo below, you can see the existing cabin as we ready it to be moved. And to the right below, you can see the front and rear elevations of the home being designed for our clients by Meyer Designs from Coldstream.

The new home will be a beautiful 2,400 square foot rancher on one level, built on a crawlspace. It will featured a soaring vaulted ceiling in the centre, with nine-foot ceilings elsewhere. A huge deck/veranda will be located at the front of the home, and an oversize garage will provide plenty of storage and parking. The plan also features three spacious bedrooms, including a massive owner’s suite at one end of the house, and an office and three bathrooms.

This is an exciting project that we’re greatly anticipating getting underway. Look for more photos and updates as we move forward.
