Old meets new in this sustainable boat house constructed of band-sawn, standing-dead larch wood salvaged from a Canadian forest and left untreated to allow the wood’s natural warm tones to show. Harkening back to coastal New England architecture of the late 1800s and early 1900s, the boat house includes a full-length monitor that lets natural light fill the interior spaces. The house is finished with period interior and exterior details.
