East Kootenay Haven
Built by LWE Builders, this Georgie Awards® winning and BUILT GREEN® Platinum certified home is located steps away from the shores of one of the many picturesque lakes in British Columbia’s East Kootenays. Designed to maximize the lot’s triangular shape, the home features a mountain modern design with a stunning butterfly roof-line that connects the home to its surrounding nature.
With warm summers and cold winters, one of the primary considerations was year-round comfort achieved through an highly insulated building envelope and an energy efficient heating system, including:
- R60 ICF foundation
- R30 wall assembly with 2×6 Pacific SmartWall® Technology by Pacific Homes
- Triple glazed Innotech windows and doors
- Warm roof assembly with 6 inches of 2-pound sprayfoam
- 2 air source heat pumps
- 96% Viessman boiler for domestic heat, hot water and in-slab heating
- Independent HRV system
East Kootenay Haven was awarded two 2017 Georgie Awards: Best Custom Home valued between $1,300,000 – $1,899,000 and Best Certified Home – Custom. Congratulations!
