He managed to keep it a secret for a while, but eventually had to come clean when he found she'd already bought a table from a retail chain. They returned the table and this weekend she gets this custom, one of a kind table.

Brian had a vision to build a house mostly of recycled and reclaimed building materials. Over the past 6 months we've deconstructed enough granaries to supply Brian with material for his ceilings, barn-style sliding doors, and cabinets.

The Routhier Barn
In 1885 Jean Charles Routhier rode west from Quebec with the North West Mounted Police to stamp out the Riel Rebellion. In 1891 Jean Routhier retired from the NWMP and homesteaded south of Pincher Creek. It was here he raised a family and built this barn for his horses and cattle. The homestead was sold to Pincher Creek Ranches in 1945 and in recent months a newly developed acreage requires the dismantling of the barn.
