Vacation Dream Custom Home Under 1,400 Sq. Ft.

Small in Size but Packed with Style

If you were to design a cottage or cabin to call your own, what size would it be? The latest national trend reports say it would be smaller than what you might have designed in 2007. It would also have an open concept floor plan, and be greener and less costly to maintain. In short, it might just be the latest Linwood 1,382 sq. ft. design, the Birchview.

Intended to be a dream come true, the Birchview was created as the Early Bird Prize in the 2010 Princess Margaret Home Lottery®. The proceeds of ticket sales from the Lottery support breakthrough cancer research conducted by The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation – one of the top five cancer research centers in the world. Aside from the Birchview’s striking Douglas fir timbers and premium Western Red Cedar accents that are characteristic of Linwood homes, the vaulted great room in this efficient design offers panoramic lake views. Linwood’s focus on green building is reflected in the prize cottage as well, with approximately 75% of the home made from renewable materials.
