Farrell-Phear Cottage - T.I. Park

the house 1_1

Design & Builder:  Steve Taylor
Engineer: William Strodel
Owner:  The Phear Family
Location:  Thousand Island Park

Originally there were two almost identical cottages owned by siblings sitting on adjacent lots looking over Crystal Bay.  One was torn down fifty or sixty years ago leaving one family on a two lot site.  When the cottage became too small to accommodate the expanding family, we were asked to design an addition.  

The cottage was full of family history with a distinctive and cherished charm.  An old photo showing the two cottages was our clue to build as if the removed cottage was resurrected as an addition.
