Do­nate to­day!

ARF is a reg­is­tered char­ity and is staffed al­most en­tirely by vol­un­teers. All mon­e­tary and non-mon­e­tary do­na­tions are very grate­fully ac­cepted by the vol­un­teers and the many cats and dogs wait­ing for their ‘fur­ever’ homes!

Best Home (Canada) - - Kitchen Craft -

mod­ern farm­house of imag­i­na­tion and strik­ing fea­tures brings to life the plea­sures of ur­ban liv­ing. Show­cas­ing inim­itable curb ap­peal and ex­cit­ing at­trac­tions within, Trickle Creek De­signer Homes ap­plies a unique, per­son­al­ized view to to hos­pitable charm and in­no­va­tion.

Lo­cated at 2005 – 48 Av­enue SW, the Mag­no­lia ex­hibits a mod­ern farm­house de­sign of cre­ative func­tion with per­va­sive warmth and rus­tic fin­ishes and fea­tures that host an el­e­ment of fun. Built-in bunk beds of­fer an easy-climb side stair­case, a cozy wall niche in­vites re­lax­ation, and a hid­den room off the kitchen brings flex­i­ble func­tion and imag­i­na­tion to the fore­front.

Host­ing five be­d­rooms the home is fam­ily-friendly, yet its ex­pan­sive main floor and gen­er­ous mul­ti­ple out­door ar­eas suc­ceed in pro­vid­ing an en­vi­ron­ment that does not feel con­fined or as ‘skinny’ as some in­fills ap­pear. Its 3,660-square-foot in­te­rior is am­ply bal­anced on a thirty-six-foot-wide lot with an ad­di­tional 1,200 square feet in the base­ment. “We wanted to show­case that even on a smaller lot you can de­sign an amaz­ing fam­ily home. The lay­out makes it ap­pear more spa­cious, and in that re­spect our team hit it out of the park.”

Given a farm­house premise, the chal­lenge in the de­sign was to in­cor­po­rate mod­ern el­e­ments and fea­tures such as the can­tilevered wood and glass stair­case with steel beam en­gi­neer­ing af­fix­ing wall an­chored treads. “The ma­jor­ity of our visi­tors are just ex­cited to see some­thing dif­fer­ent. Peo­ple are also as­tounded by the qual­ity of the fea­tures and fin­ishes and it’s fun watch­ing them go through the home and by then end of the tour they are ea­ger to share with us the many un­ex­pected things that de­lighted them,” cites Nicole.
