Production is in full swing on our Great Lakes Cabin for #IDSToronto. Our manufacturing partners, #cascadianwoodtech are applying their Swiss craftsmanship to the prefabricated kit of parts in the preparation for the show. Cyrill Werlen and his team in Comox, BC, experts in pre-fabricated timber framing, are bringing our vision and design to life. When the kit of parts arrives in Toronto, all that will be left to do is to assemble the hut in the tradeshow, without the need for any heavy machinery. Follow along as we reveal elements of the cabin and its interior design as we build toward the show in January. #BHC #BHCIDSToronto #IDS2019

We wanted to extend a huge thank you to our incredible sponsors! When the Great Lakes Cabin is showcased at @idstoronto in January 2019, we’ll be featuring beautiful products and materiality from @ayakitchens, #MieleCanada, @blancocanada, @blubathworks, @loewenwindows, #RJCross, @stonetileint, @veluxcanada, and #FlatteryDesign. Wilson Edgar, Co-founder of The ​Backcountry​ Hut explains, “​The Great Lakes Backcountry​ Hut allows consumers a glimpse into how existing prefabrication techniques can be applied to a new DIY approach to cabin building. At a time when the pace of our lives seems to be ever increasing, it feels like a great opportunity to engage the inherent qualities of good design – function, beauty, and materiality and help us to create places to relax and recharge. We seek to create an environment that’s highly functional, but at the same time feels like home. We operate with a straightforward approach, producing cabins which are beautiful, rugged, and refined. Every detail is carefully considered​”. Rendering by @plusvisual.co. #BHC #IDS2019 #IDSToronto #BHCIDSToronto

Select copy from @designlinesmagazine writer Mark Teo: “The cabin’s form is immediately recognizable to anyone who’s spent time in, say, Algonquin or the Kawarthas. The main floor is open concept, with a kitchen, living and dining room — Its second storey, like so many cabins, is a lofted sleeping area. Even its timber frame references the traditional materiality of Ontario cottages, though its envelope – customizable to meet Net Zero and Passive House standards – is decidedly contemporary.” You can find the Great Lakes Cabin at @idstoronto 2019, happening between January 17-20 at the Metro Convention Centre.

Going portable and prefab doesn’t have to mean compromising on quality and aesthetics either. We offer our clients the option to choose custom materials, furnishings and fit-out.

Working to capture a certain essentialism, our projects are brought to life using our highly unique product and process. Within the space, this notion is a large part of the overall design aesthetic — not one square foot of space remains unused. Our Surf Hut is thoughtful in design and purposeful in intent. Offering high vaulted ceilings and framed views, the Surf Shack allows for easy indoor / outdoor living. Modular in design for scalability, this modernist space is balanced with minimalism in regards to aesthetic, and a sense of rustic warmth. We always work to produce a product based on practicality, without ever sacrificing enduring design. Rendering by @plusvisual.co. #BHC

Our Backcountry Hut System was created to provide a method of construction for both temporary and full-time residences in often difficult to access areas. From mountainsides, to faraway lakes, and deep wooded landscapes, these huts were created to be ingrained in nature. Through experience, we’ve learned how to operate in remote places, and our prefabricated designs for these recreational structures offer a quick building process for installation in these areas — something that outdoor enthusiasts like us dream about. #BHC

The walls and ceiling are clad in plywood, with contrasting dark materials thoughtfully integrated to create a modernist space that balances minimal aesthetics with rustic warmth.
