From Rosedale to coun­try rose

North Toronto Post - - Homes -

Rosedale res­i­dent and HGTV Canada per­son­al­ity Sarah Richard­son is em­bark­ing on her sev­enth home de­sign se­ries, Sarah Off The Grid. This time she’s get­ting the whole fam­ily in­volved as she’s shar­ing the gen­eral con­trac­tor role with her hus­band Alex and get­ting in­put from her daugh­ters as they build their dream fam­ily home out in Creemore, Ont. What makes this home ex­tra spe­cial? It is go­ing to be en­tirely off the elec­tric­ity power grid. That means so­lar pan­els to gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity and dig­ging a well to bring wa­ter to the home, among many other eco-friendly tac­tics. Richard­son hasn’t said good­bye to the city, though. Her Midtown house and down­town of­fice are still home base. Sarah Off The Grid pre­mieres Sun­day, Sept. 10, at 10 p.m.
