Remainder House by Openspace Architecture

Don Gurney of Openspace Architecture found a warehouse that was being demolished, and bought a pile of Douglas fir to build this house in the woods. Being a modest home of 610 SF on the main floor and 300 more in the loft, it didn't take a lot to build almost the entire house out of reclaimed materials.

from the Architect's website:

The Remainder House is a celebration of old growth timbers salvaged from a New Westminster warehouse. The house was carefully sited on a tight triangular shaped lot to frame a woodland garden, maintaining the existing trees, minimizing the visual impact to neighbors and maximizing Southern views over the water. All was achieved without removing a single existing tree.
