Efficient Living

About This Home

This award winning home was built in The Ridge development in the Hammond Bay area of Nanaimo.  It is a Pheasant Hill Homes custom design, achieved through the design services of Saturna Studios and Interior Design by Roné Dorsay of Pheasant Hill Homes.  It feature West Coast architecture and finishes, while seamlessly incorporating excellent energy saving features.  Stand out features include cedar post and beam work inside and out, hardwood floors, two patios carefully positioned to enjoy the morning and evening sun, aluminum clad triple-glazed windows, in-floor radiant heating, and a full exterior insulation wrap.  We considered the site, how the house will relate to traffic, views, the sun’s path, and family living patterns.  This house has an excellent design as it sits well on the lot, allows people to connect with the landscape around them, and balances the need for protection and comfort with our desire for a sense of light and space.  It won 3 awards at the 2016 Vancouver Island Building Excellence (VIBE) Awards:

  • FortisBC Award for Excellence in Energy Efficiency in New Residential Construction
  • Best Single Family Kitchen – New under $50,000
  • Best Single Family Home Between 1,500 – 3,000 sq. ft.
