The heating system is provided by an in-floor radiant heating system run off a geothermal heat pump. Heating and cooling lines are piped down to a floating dock in the ocean. The lines are coiled into a large metal cage and hung from underneath the floating dock. Heat is then extracted from the ocean water condensed and distributed through the in floor coils of the house. The floors are ground and polished concrete with cut lines creating 4’ x 4’ tiles.
Live Edge Counters
All of the interior maple and cherry millwork was built by Road’sEnd’s woodworking shop. Live edge counter tops as well aa the powder room vanity were built from character maple.
Senanus was built in an environmentally sensitive area with rare flowers and a rare type of pine that is only found in a couple of spots on Vancouver Island. Great care was taken not to disturb these areas and today this area is doing well with little to no affect from the house build.
