Making memories: A peaceful slice of paradise deep in the Gatineau Hills
from Ottawa Citizen
A country retreat perched on a massive chunk of granite in scenic Val-des-Monts is full of surprises, gently emerging from the forest, while delivering spectacular views of a tiny lake at the bottom of a steep hill. The modest cottage, built for a busy Ottawa family of four, blends seamlessly with its environment — a peaceful slice of paradise deep in the Gatineau Hills, about 40 minutes from the nation's capital. "The house explodes in a gentle way," says senior architect Rick Shean of Christopher Simmonds Architect Inc. "It is a simple house full of revelations."
