Post & Beam Home, Vancouver Island

This large diameter cedar post and beam located in the rainforest on Vancouver Island takes full advantage of being perched up on a hill side.  The centre of the living space has two very special flared posts going from floor to ceiling with a nice little wood burning fireplace set between.  The main floor of this house maintains a nice open feeling with 18’ vaulted ceilings down the centre with huge windows taking in the view.  One side wing of the house is where you can find the master bedroom with large private ensuite, a second bedroom, office and shared bathroom at the opposite end of the house is where the entrance and kitchen are.
