Cliff House by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects

View all 11 Photos

Lunging over ridged rocks so maximizing the beautiful scene off Nova Scotia’s Atlantic Coast is the Cliff House, the first in a series of similar constructions by MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects. Situated on 455 crisp acres, these small cabins only 960 square feet amplify a simple get away using unconventional designs. It’s an interior clearly luxurious although not indulgent with only the efficiencies at hand. Quality craftsmanship ravishes the landscape with impressive galvanized steel beams stretching and reaching the underside to the bedrock below. Outside ocean stained cedar siding is worn grayish; whereas the interior wooden panels showcase in a golden hue. Dramatic cross beams cut through the great room in a demonstrative presentation, exaggerating the depth and height of the room, the vastness of the view just beyond them.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
