(The Treehouse is a unique home set on a 1.53 acre (6204 m2) highbank oceanfront lot on the south side of Savary Island. It was designed by Sue Webster in 2006, after several visits to the site, and built by Chris Matz between April 2007 and August 2008. The design takes advantage of the ocean view, the seasonal light, the surrounding forest and the privacy of the site. The construction is post and beam and the finishes are practical (metal roofs to minimize fire risk) and respectful of the site (colours chosen to blend the structure into the forest). The floors are solid fir, finished in an oil wax from AFM Naturals, as is all the interior trim. The construction is fully permitted (septic, electrical, plumbing and solar)
Exposure is due south. Overhangs are wide to allow for maximum passive solar in the winter and maximum shade in the summer. Some of the many clearstory windows open, to allow natural cooling in the summer.Gaulhofer aluminum clad spruce windows with thermal protection glass (double low e coating, argon filled with R value of 3.7) and triple weather strip system, insulate against heat and noise. A folding wall of windows in the living area opens to a span of 13ft by 7 ft! The masonry fireplace is very environmentally friendly, as the gases released by burning are further burnt, so that all that is released to the environment is water vapour. In addition, the unit acts as a heat sink, releasing heat to the room slowly. One burn a day in cooler weather keeps TheTreehouse warm.
