    Description

    This custom home was constructed in 1986 by a crew of Swedish builders. It was purchased in Kelowna from a Swedish Company and is aptly named “Sweden Has.” The house was stored in Kelowna as part of a housing project that saw five homes imported from Sweden to Vancouver. Four were constructed on the coast and this one was on its way to the Canadian Arctic but relocation fell through and it had to be sold here. At that time, the house exceeded both building and thermal standards, and was advertised to exceed R2000 standards. It was intended for the Canadian Arctic , and is insulated with fire resistant Roxul insulation in all walls and ceilings. Wooden, Norwegian designed, triple paned windows provide extra insulating feature in the home. The windows are an “H” design which rotate through a 180 degree turning range outside the frame for easy cleaning. To supplement the near airtight aspect of the home, it has an efficient air exchange system that provides fresh air in the home 24/7 and presents any moisture buildup in the living space. Excellent services include Fortis power, Telus internet & TV, RDCO garbage and recycling. Mission Creek provides fishing, hiking, wildlife and recreation year round. Clean air, clean water, large tree canopies and total privacy and seclusion. Family friendly flat site with a river, excellent to accommodate large family gatherings with RV’s.
