Wellington County Farmhouse

Fully-Accessible Energy-Efficient Addition and Renovation

Many of the charming and distinctive features of the original farmhouse were carefully considered and incorporated into the design of these fully-accessible, resource and energy-efficient additions and renovations. Generous glazing naturally illuminates the dining room, while careful selection and placement of bathroom fixtures ensures accessibility and inclusivity for all. This traditional, century-old home in rural Ontario is now equipped to meet the special needs of a dynamic 21st-century family.
