The First Nations Community of Lake St. Martin will finally be able to move home 6 years after being flooded and displaced to save Winnipeg. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Matix Lumber in designing new homes for this community and excited to see the first completed house roll out yesterday.
Matix Lumber approached us to become involved because they wanted to get away from the standard dated floor plans and offer the residents a fresh new design. Of course, we were up for the challenge to design several options for 3-Bedroom, 4-Bedroom and 5-Bedroom homes as well as Accessible homes. Fairly stringent guidelines and standards needed to be followed, however, we managed to find ways to add interest and spice up the plans. Decreased hall space and angles were incorporated into the plans and trims and accent colours brightened up the exterior.
