While at ISBA a person notices a very impressive 4500 ft2 post and beam house. This is the main residence and the office for ISBA. This structure is made from patina   white pine timbers, traditionally joined in Craftsman style with Swiss Tyrolean and Japanese influence. It was built in 1987 by James in a shop in Surry, BC three years before it was erected on the property on Gabriola. It is a great example of how versatile the modular building style we teach at ISBA is. Build, Ship, Erect.
