Being that we are under a renovation at the ark, there really wasn’t anywhere to host a Christmas for the folks out there. I had an idea that not only would be a great place to gather for Christmas dinner but also to enjoy for many gatherings throughout the year. I really wanted to have a sanctuary in general on the property. I just love tipis and needed a good excuse to get one. Being that Christmas is my favourite time of year, I thought it would be perfect. I just love the tipi for its gathering ability, its warmth, its comfort and its fashion in general. Plus, who wouldn’t want to enjoy a winter adventure in a tipi?

I had the opportunity to work for a home builder while I stayed and worked on a reno of my own. I truly feel that if you are thinking of getting into the home reno business that you should try and find your way to work with a professional in some way. I didn’t have any family with any experience so it was the best way I knew how to get the inside scoop on the trades, the home design and the interior decorating in one short season and of course make some money while you’re at it. I learned what I needed to know about the costs and what it would take to build my own or renovate. Of course, this also had its limits and the designs were for the suburbs but for functional city living in Alberta.
