This custom family cottage in Alberta was designed by Sansin partner MiRA Timber Frame for an infill lot near the beach. The exposed heavy timber open-tread stairs, coated in a rich color that contrasts beautifully against the white MDF slat walls, is one of the prominent architectural features of the home. The stairs lead to the heart of the home, where the vaulted great room, kitchen and dining room flow freely to the screened-in covered porch, capturing beautiful views. The timber throughout the home is protected with Sansin SDF, which MiRA purchases from Sansin retailer Days Paint. The timbers are coated with a custom color that MiRA has named “Jacobean”. It has become so popular that MiRA has added it to its stock timber colors. The warmth of the coating is a perfect complement to the lighter tongue and groove ceilings and creates a warm atmosphere for family gatherings.
