Nanaimo, BC, CANADA / Built in 1949
"When I was a boy, an A-frame house in our neighborhood was everyone's dream house," said Scott. For Laura, the image of an A-frame house was always in Germany, covered with snow and where people were enjoying hot cheese fondu inside.
They were also attracted by the big yard. There are some fruit trees such as a pear tree, an apple tree, and a cherry tree there. The walking trail in the deep forest behind their yard leads us to wander around, as though we were kids. "We're on vacation at home" - Scott's expression remains in my mind.
Scott's favorite spot is the A-frame. He's a big music person with 17 years of DJ experience, and he also plays the piano and the guitar. The back side of the A-frame has shelves with a million CDs and records, and it turns into a dance floor once they have their friends come over!
They used to have a house in the big city, Vancouver, and they both spent a lot of time working. They were fulfilled, but they also had a lot of stress in their lives. They told each other - "let's do only what we want", when they decided to move to their A-frame house.
Both of them love welcoming guests to their home, so that they're planning to open a B&B in a few years. "We're thinking about building two buildings - one for families, and the other for honeymooners." It was so exciting to listen to them talk about their future projects. Maybe the large space of the A-frame helps people's dreams grow larger?
〜 A Message from Laura and Scott to you〜
Just go for it! Embrace it.
