February 2007 | Issue 14

With three really good feature stories ready to go this edition, it wasn’t easy to choose a front cover; but we finally settled on our It’s About Choices article about builder design centres. Check it out and see how one-stop shopping for new home interiors has become ‘design of the times’.

Then, with the Flames still hot in the NHL playoff hunt, visit with a young fan who takes his hockey seriously. From a score clock for a light, to walls painted in team colours, to framed photos and collectables, it’s like walking into the Flames’ dressing room – only it smells better. Still on the topic of kids’ rooms, we finish off the piece with a few photos of unique ideas from a couple of different home builders.

Rounding out our trio of feature stories is a short article on home offices. Whether you’re actually running a full-time business out of your home, or just setting up a part-time work space for when you need it, the office furniture and equipment options out there are growing by the day.

Also profiled in this edition is the community of Silverado, with quick visits to several show homes; plus the Sterling Group of Companies, a Qualico-related company that includes home builders Sterling Homes and Pacesetter Homes.

For our monthly tour of show homes we’ve  really put on the mileage on this one, travelling from Douglas Homes in Taralake, to Discovery Homes in Cranston, and then all the way out to Langdon to see what Deep Shergill’s Prominent Homes is up to.

Meanwhile, we continue with our other regular editorial departments such as the Designer’s Choice floor plan focus, Giving Back, Gadgets and Gizmos, and Around Town. We also took the time to pop down to the grand opening of Cardel’s new STARS lottery show home in Evergreen in support of a great cause.
