The Cowshed House is aptly named considering that before housing humans, it was built for cows. A relic of the area's former existence, the family who purchased it was at odds at first about taking such a chance on an older property. Nevertheless, the architecture firm they approached before pulling the trigger advised them that the Cowshed House was a rare opportunity to preserve some of the character and charm of this eclectic neighbourhood.

Considering the increase of soul-less shoebox condos and other modern residences, hanging onto the past such as the Cowshed House does is not a terrible thing but a coveted chance to be party to something so special. Especially after it was revamped to accommodate contemporary living.
