Raven View House: David Dobie designed Post & Beam construction with cordwood infill,  which offers thermal mass so it is cool in the summer & warm in the winter. The home has 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and offers a blend of Fir and Larch wood floors with tiled bathrooms. The home has had a number of recent renovations including a large master suite with a walk-in-closet and ensuite, new roof and dormers, appliances, and woodstoves. The  Basement has a newer 1000 square foot 2 bedroom suite which is ideal for a caretaker or as a mortgage helper.  The property is powered by a State of the Art 17 Kilo Watt Micro Hydro system that has been recently overhauled to provide years of comfortable off the  grid living. This system has been used as an example by Selkirk Colleges Alternative Energy Course.  The 40 Unzoned Private  Acres which backs onto Crown land is stunning  with Sandy Creek running through the property. The property is mainly forested yet has a number of flower gardens featuring many perennials, and over 15 rose varieties. There is plenty of space for large vegetable gardens.

Strawbale House: This home is also Post and Beam Construction but instead of cordwood infill it is a Strawbale Infill. This 3 bedroom 2 bath 2 woodstove home is incredibly comforting and the thick walls add greatly to the aesthetic value and it is this thickness that helps to reflect the sunlight throughout the rooms. This home is generously spaced from the Raven House to give one your own sense of privacy. This property affords owners unlimited opportunities from Co-Family ownership to a lucrative vacation rental business. With the land being unzoned the potential for more homes or small cottages is a possibility.
