When clients in Clearview, Ontario wanted to build an all-new chalet, they were looking for something with practicality and minimal maintenance. The result is the Clearview Chalet by AKB, a beautiful structure that is nestled neatly into a snowy slope.

This humble abode overlooks the beautiful Nottawasaga Bay surrounded by a snowy landscape. Another plus for these clients is the low-cost construction needed to build the place. The result of this economizing is a low-pitch overhung roof that fits well in contrast to the snowy landscape. The dark coloring also stands out against the stark, white topography. If you are looking to build a chalet on a budget, the Clearview Chalet by AKB is a great example of how style does not have to be costly.
