Oak Ridges Moraine And Happy Valley Forest

Our new house is situated on 108 acres on the Oak Ridges Moraine, and 53 acres are in the Happy Valley Forest.

We have planned and permitted for three years, as we care deeply about the health and integrity of the Moraine.
Our intentions are to put the land back to a more natural state; it was left in quite a mess by a prior owner.

We're installing 5 wind turbines,and solar panels. Our heating and cooling system will be geothermal and plan on adding photovoltaic cells to compliment the solar.

We have been trying to use all "green" materials and recycled products throughout our home.
It's a tremendously exciting and educational process!
