I have a collection of articles on mid-century Ottawa home building, but I was unsure how to post them in a way that made sense. I decided post them by theme - so here is the first batch. The articles are from National Builder and Canadian Building magazines about sales and marketing by various builders:

I am curious as to what the lighted planter box with book shelves looked like.
