Featured Kitchen

Situated on a quiet street in the East Garafraxa Woods estate subdivision, this Normerica Timber Frame home features intricate beam work throughout and could easily be mistaken for a cottage in Muskoka (minus the lake of course).

I remember lengthy discussions on which paint to buy, whether they needed to prime the walls first or not, and which method was going to be the best to get the paint properly applied (brush, rollers, both?) – and this wasn’t even including settling on a colour that would make...
