Here a few shots of the interior of the unique
(The first of it's kind built 'North-of-60' - so well
that it requires just minimal heating - even in Yukon winters)
I had the privilege to complete all the interior panelling with pine
T&G, add more walls in the loft, finish the floors and do the bathroom tiling.
(This is just a quick photo
collection, more details, as well as videos of the procedures
will be added here soon.)
From the outside it is a rather strange looking 'tin' box
Tin was chosen because of the constant wildfire potential, that we
here in the rural areas of the Yukon.
But the inside, behind 20" thick, sheep-wool insulated walls with an
R 70 value, reveals its unique, traditional beam construction.
All beams were joined with tenons and wooden dowels, which
was to be left visible. The braces were sawed in decorative arches, and were quite demanding for the panelling, as
all cuts needed to be curved and fitted without gaps. I made templates for the cuts, yet still it varied from board
to board. It was a challenging fun, that I truly enjoyed !
Fitting the panel boards.
A whole tree is the center post for support and the handrails.
The same room after the mess.
Main room on bottom floor.
It's a very unique and cosy home !
