Left almost raw, with a light whitewash, the walls of CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) are experienced as a beach cabin – a raw, visceral natural experience of nature. The white pine knots are exposed, interior trim is kept to a minimum, and the utilities are hidden in a central service core. The CLTHouse will be built to PassivHaus standards, and will be revealed to the interior domestic spaces. Construction by Cascade Built, it was completed in June 2015.
