In 1965, Elizabeth Harwood built a Techbuilt vacation cottage on Appletree Point in Burlington, situating it so the large covered porch, formed by simply extending the roof and support beams beyond one end of the structure, commands a stunning view of Lake Champlain. The one-story Harwood cottage is built on a poured concrete slab, but it could also be supported by footings, making it easy to build in even more remote wilderness areas.

Today the cottage remains in largely original condition and is well maintained.
