Single family

Chaumière de la Merci  |  

Building a new and environmentally friendly country house, with limited financial resources.



Seated in a clearing of the Laurentian Mountains, the house has an unobstructed view of the lake, permitting the use of passive solar heating. A showcase of high-end technologies (radiant heating and air exchange system, natural and high-performance materials such as balloon frame, cedar siding roof and hempcrete), this project is bursting with ecological qualities.
