Stay tuned for a new and up to date version of the site launching early spring 2013 - Click here for a sneak peek...

In the early 1950s a group from the British Columbia wood industry sponsored the building of a series of innovative Modern Style homes across Canada, in a similiar fashion to the Case Study Program in the United States. This web site documents the design and restoration of the Calgary Trend House undertaken since 2001.

The History section is a collection of all the background information that I can find with regards to the circumstances surrounding the creation of the Trend Houses in Canada In the Design section you will find discussion of the design of the house and the good, bad and ugly things that living in the house has revealed. The Gallery contains several online photo albums of various aspects of the Calgary Trend House and the ongoing renovations In the Links section you'll find links to other sites and resources for the Trend Houses as well as the Case Study House program in the U.S.
