Maximize That View

Update: Genoa Bay House (Genoa Bay Custom Home) is now complete! You can view the finished photos of this gorgeous ocean view home here.

Check out these pictures from our current build in Maple Bay!  The roof is being completed, and soon the exterior siding will be going on.  You can click on each picture to see a bigger version. If you follow us on Facebook or Instagram, you may recognize the view from recent updates (and if not, then make sure to start following us today).

Making use of the outside world is an important step of any home design.   However, not every home will have a view like this Genoa Bay house.  Even homeowners who don’t have beautiful mountain, valley, or water views need to consider how to maximize the natural and built environment around them and plan how they will bring the beauty and light of the outdoors into their home.   Through effective window, door, and deck placement (and perhaps some landscaping investment), you can block out some of what you don’t want to see, and more effectively enjoy what made you choose you build site.

This Maple Bay home has the benefit of towering views of the ocean and Saltspring Island.  The land is heavily sloped, so the homeowners have designed a home that capitalizes on that height, creating 3 levels from which to soak up the outdoors (including an eventual lower level deck).  We can’t wait to show you what it will look like when it’s finished!
