This week I was experiencing writer's block, and then I discovered that I had a handfull of unpublished posts...so here is a short one that I started in 2010:
The following is a 1962 article from Canadian Builder magazine on Minto's Crystal Beach development.
If only I had a time machine to go back and see the model home parade!
|The Neptune plan above is actually the same plan as the "Alpine" plan below (also built in Crystal Beach). The difference is that the "Neptune" is rotated so the Living and Dining Room are to the side with a wall, and there is no vaulted ceiling.|
Many of these plans were built in other Minto communities at the time such as Parkwood Hills, Lakeview Park, Fairfield Heights and Qualicum.
