Assaly Trend Homes

During the 1960s and 1970s the builder Assaly (sometimes teamed with the builder Joahnnsen) built a series of houses under the banner of "Trend Homes". These houses were built in areas including Trend Village, Woodroffe on the Green, Westcliffe Estates and Glenwood Park (in Aylmer, Quebec). Assaly's designs at the time are notable for the sheer variety that they offered in terms of exterior styles, ranging from Mid-Century Modern to more traditionally inspired designs. In some cases a house design could be rotated on the lot to create an entirely different looking house.  In Trend Village, the plans even included some Spanish-style variations.  By rotating the house and moving the garage location, design B-20 and B-30 look like completely different houses. E-30 is unique in that the living room and kitchen/dining room are flipped in comparison to the E-10 and E-20.  In an older blog post
