Quispamsis Riverfront Bunkie
In the case of this Quispamsis riverfront bunkie, purpose is a well rounded concept. Versatile in all senses. It truly functions as whatever its owner sees it to be. An at-home waterfront office, creative studio, gym, airbnb rental, general get-away or a place for children to play. All of these opportunities in one glorious woodsy waterfront package.
To allow clients a space to decompress from daily ambitions. Watching their little girl play, learn, grow, be inspired, create. Only a 6 second walk from the back doors of their home and all its comforts. It’s inspiring, conveniently located and feels like a retreat. The backyard placement is put to great good use. During relevant times when outdoor air is being craved for.
Respecting the riverfront surroundings is mostly due to the Lepage Millwork Windows purchased locally through Ultimate Windows in Saint John. Sliding glass doors that give this bunkie its expanded waterview and glass cabin frontage. Bursting with a look and feel of nature-inspired connection.
Tongue & groove hemlock and pine boards line the shelter’s interior. An impactful pair of black railings reach skywards to wrap around the loft’s edge. The space here is sized comfortably for a bed, tucked against a custom built-in headboard lined with nooks. On the exterior, exposed rafter tails give the bunkie its clean classic appeal.
The siding is a cedar board and batten. Heat and electricity were not forgotten, making this space enjoyable year-round. Morning, noon and night. An eastern cedar front porch extends from the sliding glass doors to a wide set of stairs. Easing the walkway towards the river and all its glory.
The main floor is 180 square feet with the loft being 90 square feet. Although modest in space, size is no issue for the intentions here. With room to sit, sleep, decompress, enjoy the view, quality of build and all its visual offerings. This Vantage Build Quispamsis riverfront bunkie is an illustration of unique times and making the most of them, safely.
