have recently completed the renovation of a house located in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, that overlooks the Kalamalka Lake.

The renovation of the existing 1970’s house included adding and changing the location of many of the windows and skylights, so that the house would have as much natural light reaching the interior as possible.

Nathan Buhler, founder of BLDG Workshop, worked together with his sister’s firm, Adrianne Bailie Design, to complete the interiors of the house. In the living room, large windows look out towards the lake, while a fireplace keeps it cozy in the winter.
