    This house was built in victoria b.c. in 1950. In 1993 I moved it by barge to 10 acres on beautiful denman island, it is still a work in progress in many ways. There are plenty of details to be finished, involving carpentry, plaster and mosiac work, painting cleaning and generally helping to finish restoration of this fairy tale home.
