There is our little red schoolhouse on the cover of Saturday's National Post Homes Section. The story goes that we took a decommissioned, converted schoolhouse that had once been a one-room schoolhouse and restored it back to its glory as a one-room schoolhouse; with double entries and a bell tower; sans hoards of school children.
Give the article a read to get the whole story or, if you prefer, just take a gander at the photos.
And if you live in a unique house, we would love to hear about it!

Two of our favourite clients and friends, artist Janet Hill and of Fanfare Books, John Woodward, were featured in The Globe & Mail, a showcase of the lovely addition we built on their Ontario Cottage.
We designed the space with a California cottage feel, yet paying homage to the finishing details of the original home. An electic, relaxing living room to read, listen to records and watch classic movies with their delightful dog, Finnigan, was the resulting hybrid.
