Lodge Exterior: Rustic Lakeside Estate in Chilko, British Columbia, Canada
With its large sitting areas, central kitchen, TV, game room and bar, the lodge is the gathering place for family and visitors. Built in a hub-and-spoke design with the main house as the hub, the 4,100-square-foot timber frame structure is made from large fir beams recycled from an elevator built in 1904. The beams have a 100-year-old patina that is striking. The exterior boasts cedar siding custom milled by Pioneer Log Homes and shaved on site.
