Unique Houses of Waterloo Region
I like these four houses on St. Emilion Place.

This is the house on Ellen. It is definitely unique. It may look a little more in place once the wood has aged.

I think you mean Ahrens? Or Roy? I live on Ellen, and that's definitely not on Ellen :p

Sorry, I walked both Ahrens and Ellen this morning. The house pictured is indeed on Ahrens.

My wife and I both looked at this and remembered the stained wood on the exterior of our former house. And how much maintenance it needed (clear and semi-clear stains don't last very long). Neither one of us wanted to relive this experience, as nice as this house looks when new.

That looks absolutely phenomenal! I can only imagine how good the inside looks, provided the residents have good taste in design.

I know when they built the new stands for the stadium in Ottawa that the wood they used was specifically planned to age to a silvery patina over time. I wonder if that is the intent here as well, because maintaining it in that condition seems like a herculean task.
