This new home for a music teacher is located on a beautiful wooded lot north of Toronto.  After the design was completed Jan Wintjes of Construction Source and I developed the working drawings. The house location was carefully chosen nestled in the mature pine trees to take advantage of the natural beauty of the site. Salvaged wood posts and beams were carefully introduced in the design of the new home to accent the rustic appearance.
