Summer cottage is prefabbed out of cross-laminated timber
Cross-laminated timber, or CLT, makes so much sense these days. Trees are renewable; wood construction sequesters carbon for the life of the building. CLT also is a form of flatpack prefab, where the sheets are cut to size at the factory and shipped on a flatbed, then assembled like a house of cards. Kariouk Associates of Ottawa, Canada, designed a three-season cottage by a lake in Quebec for a family from Manhattan, New York. It replaces an existing cottage of the same size that was in "an advanced state of decay."
