The Craig House, Mansell Hill Road

A large California-style ranch sitting atop a large hill presents problems of privacy and scale. The wraparound wall successfully anchors the house on the landscape. Then a south-facing crushed stone patio and steps extends the human space out into the landscape, and a working mans back entrance gives easy access to barns, snow-clearing and farm equipment.. Rooftop drainage is broken up by stone "features" and the job of planting can begin.

Less is more. A granite stone arrangement prevents washout and sets off well against warm grey interlocking steps. The gravel base might be paved later as funding permits Before. Plunked on the Ontario landscape, this excellent California ranch needs to feel at home
A large vehicular utility area is vital for a modern farming operation.
