Boreal Modern is where two about-to-be-new-homeowners try to make sense of the world of building an energy efficient home in Alberta. One likes to grow tomatoes and research green building methods. The other picks berries and stores them for long, cold winters of skiing and snowshoeing. Together, with their Good Dog, Tomato-Making Guy (TMG) and Winter Woman (WW) venture into the unknown together.

    OMG this is awesome!!! I feel like one of the bloggers from the Julia Child movie waiting to read the result of Julie’s next exciting recipe.

    Unfortunately we’re not as creative and will likely resort to some half-fast slide show whenever this god forsaken renovation phase of our life is done. lol

    But in the mean time I will be watching the screen for updates on your exciting adventure!!! Thanks for sharing it.

    Gotta run…

  3. Someone sent along your blog after I was telling them Ray was doing the tile. No tile pics yet? Looking fwd to seeing some. Sounds like it’s all coming together. Bet you guys can’t wait to finally move in! Great idea about having a blog!

  4. House looks awesome! I’m also planning to use smooth hardie plank on our place. I see you used the color, heathered moss? I really like that color but it’s just a little concerning because it looks different than the color swatch at Lowes.
