Calgary Trend House Photos – 2002
Below is a collection of images of the Calgary Trend House in the state that it was in when we purchased it in the spring of 2002. At the time we didn’t really know much about the history of the house other than it was ‘architect designed’, and that it had been part of a ‘competition’ of some sort. The house was generally in good shape and only slightly altered from the original (in the playroom downstairs). It had been on the market for quite some time, and was painted grey inside and out, most likely to make it as neutral as possible.
Despite some of the less than desirable paint options, we were thrilled to discover a mid-century gem, and even back then before we knew what we had, realized that the house had amazing presence (or “great bones” as they say on HGTV).
