Beacon Hill Cottage
This modern prefab 800 square foot, two-story backyard cottage was flown over neighboring rooftops with a crane and set on a traditional foundation. It features a cross laminated timber (CLT) floor slab made from five laminated layers of solid wood, only 5-1/2” thick, with the same structural performance of a traditional framed floor but saving a few precious inches of height. The slab is visible below as the ceiling, and visible above as the finish floor. Architect: Brett Holverstott / Christian Gladu Design; Engineer: Keith Ryan, TSE.; CLT Manufacturer: StructureLam.
