Located in south Surrey, BC the Ranch House sits comfortably in a country setting while still only being a short drive to the bustling metropolis of Vancouver. The home appears to be a new build but is a large-scale renovation undertaken on a very modest two-storey rancher.


The home is laid out with the main residence being connected to a garage/secondary suite with a large covered deck. The space between the two buildings becomes a true outdoor room with a large eating area, a fireplace and BBQ rounding out the room.


The exterior of the Ranch House is clad in clear-stained Western Red Cedar with bands of Douglas Fir for fascias and trim. Dark, metal clad windows and roof fascia crisply complement the wood of the fa├žade and gives the home a distinctly modern feel. A skylight runs the near full width of the outdoor room that connects the main home to the garage.


The home is an exploration of a West Coast Contemporary aesthetic juxtaposed with a more traditional play of massing and form. The design and building process was greatly facilitated by an owner/builder with the vision and passion to make his family home truly unique.
