Glebe House Tour 2014 - part 1

I have been fortunate to have been involved in a local event here in Ottawa for the past few years. The Glebe is one of the most beautiful neighbourhoods in Ottawa and on Sept 21st, several of its residents are opening their homes to those who enjoy snooping in strangers homes! COUNT ME IN! (Details, where to get tickets etc. for the tour HERE) It is a lot of fun and my husband and I have had a blast each time we have participated in the tour (p.s. posts from previous tours here, here and here). This past weekend I was lucky to have had a personal tour of one of the homes included in this year's tour. It is owned by Bob, an awesome guy who is a bachelor and recently retired and his home is one of the coolest I have ever seen on this tour (this one is for sure a must-see!). Bob had his house built about 10 years ago, and ever since I first drove by it some time ago I have been dying to get a peek inside. 

And so my tour begins.... (I just want to apologize for the amount of photos in this post but I did not want you to miss anything). 

Right from the front entrance there is exposed ductwork - Bob is a fan of industrial design elements as you will see throughout his home.

At the beginning of the tour Bob mentioned that most of the furniture in his home was not purchased - it is from friends, hand-me-downs, trash finds etc. His friends have pretty good taste. :)

At the top of the stairs

You'll never know what you will find at the top of the stairs. Perhaps a fabulous minimalist master suite with an iconic view. Birchgrove House by Nobbs Radford.

Falling

It appears so deceptively simple but don't fall for that. Almost falling down the site. Almost falling from level to level. Almost falling into the sea. Definitely falling in love with this house and its amazing view. Fall House at Big Sur, California by Fougeron Architects.

Hudson Woods

Mike Kolodesh of Lang Architecture wrote to us about a project of theirs located in Upstate New York called Hudson Woods. It is a series of really beautiful architect built eco-homes tucked away into the Catskill mountains. The perfect getaway in style! They just finished up the model home and sent us some photos to share. It has totally changed my view of 'rustic' cabin living. ;) And they have styled the home so beautifully too. Living in a home like this could very well make me more tolerant of winter (I cannot believe I just typed that).
