When they decided to sell their home, Alexander and his spouse wanted to build a house. Approximately a year later their idea became reality. The plan, which comes from the Planimage catalogue, offers a living area of 1318 sq.ft. « I did lots of research on the Internet, specified Alexander. I wanted a house that was not too big so as to keep the construction costs reasonable but with a contemporary style, a second floor and a garage. This Planimage design was interesting as it met all my needs. » Alexander bought the plan and found a place to build so work started quickly. The house was expanded by four feet towards the back, in the open area which is comprised of the living room and the kitchen.
