The Moorage Display Suite

The developers who built the Moorage condos in Ucluelet are quality builders. Sometimes builders just particle board a building together to minimum code, with budget driven materials (meaning cheap). Not these guys…there is a quality of work under the drywall that you cannot see. The building references a nautical past, when the town was just a series of boardwalks for fisherman. Long Beach is only 15 minutes away, but a series of hidden beaches around Ucluelet give you the seclusion it’s known for. This show suite was a project I did with local resources and on a shoestring budget, but with some built-in millwork and a plumper budget, you can personalize the space like this-

or more modern, like this…

With a location like this…it’s the perfect getaway close to Vancouver

It’s a place where landscapes like this-


inspire you to create things like this-

So, imagine, after a day at the beach collecting shells, kicking back in this chair…looking at this view…hmmm, life is good.

I am so fond of Ucluelet, it is magic any time of the year and Long Beach,the whole area, Chesterman, MacKenzie beaches... just out of this world. The Moorage looks like a very interesting building.

Sourcing only local and on a shoestring budget, most people don't truly understand how challenging that is - Beautifully done!
