Log Cabin Renovation - Gabriola Island GetawayTraditional Living Room, Vancouver

It all started with an old log cabin that had been transplanted onto a several acre lot in the centre of Gabriola Island. The land was a virtual paradise, with several outbuildings for creative pursuits, a terrific garden, a small pasture and stable, and beautifully spaced cedar trees throughout. It was restful and natural. The log house itself was a bit dark, cramped and dingy, but it was also filled with endearing, hand-crafted touches throughout. It was also plagued by the many energy pitfalls of typical old log home. Our challenge was to renew the log home with a more spacious, sunny interior, add more modern ammenities, make it more energy efficient and implement a reliable and sustainable water system. The catch? They didn’t want to lose any of the character or rustic charm of the original home. - See more at: http://buildbetterhomes.ca/gabriola-getaway-rebuilt-with-rustic-charm/#sthash.r5oORU0i.dpuf

Upgrading the energy efficiency with new fir windows and doors, added insulation and air tightness details, new appliances and rainwater collection completely transformed the functionality of the quaint cabin without losing any of the rustic charm.
