How This Stunning Ranch in Sault Ste. Marie Captured the Forest Indoors
- Graham Slaughter
As the seasons change in Northern Ontario, Bridget and Brian are treated to a front-row view of the action. Their secluded ranch in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. was built by local architect Bruce Caughill in 1989, and he designed the home so that every room looked onto the property’s picturesque acre of woodland. The house had good bones — including plenty of handsome teak accents — but Bridget and Brian figured the moody plum-coloured walls were past their prime. With the help of designer Brie Gallagher, they set out to modernize the home while preserving its one-of-a-kind character.
