Beneath the tall, shady pine trees at Lake Whatcom, Washington, a vacation home sits just off the shoreline. Its broad wall of windows reflects the afternoon sunlight that peeks through the pines, filling the home with light and illuminating an entire room without any effort. Although the neighbors are only 40 meters away, it’s quiet on the front patio as the residents listen to the chirps and whistles of the birds in the trees above them.
It all sounds picture perfect, doesn’t it? Well, it is! The Salish park model home from West Coast Homes is a trendy lakeside retreat with a roomy 23 square meter loft and amazing views out of its over-sized windows. The building was designed and constructed by Sproule & Associates, a company based in British Columbia that specializes in the planning and development of resort communities.
