Space to grow

Kipp McGonigal and his family built their forever home at Cooper's Crossing

With a background in cabinetmaking and a flair for design, it's no wonder that Kipp McGonigal is passionate about architecture. So, when it came time to build his family's dream home, he turned to McKee Homes, an Airdrie-based design/build firm he had worked with previously to great success.

With four kids ages eight through 11 and a pet bunny, the McGonigals wanted to create a family-friendly space in a family-friendly neighbourhood. It also needed to be a home that could take McGonigal and his wife through their retirement years. They found the perfect lot, located on a park in the Airdrie community of Cooper's Crossing, and set their long-awaited plan into motion.

Park asks to 'Save the Big H'

Calgarians rallying in support of Heritage Park landmark

Heritage Park is hoping Calgarians love their letter.

The towering "Big H" that has welcomed visitors to the park since 1975 is in need of repair, and the park is asking people to pitch in to conserve the aging consonant.

Calling on Calgarians to donate money and post their memories of the Big H to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook under with the hashtag "#SavetheBigH," Heritage Park is hoping to raise $200,000 to replace the cracked logs and crumbling base.

Home is where the haunt is

* In this three-part series, CREBNow takes a look at the sinister and spooky side of Calgary's haunted housing history 

Touring Heritage Park's eerie abodes

The accounts all sound like something out of the classic ghost story: lights that turn on with no electricity; windows and doors that seem to open and close themselves; even sightings of a long-dead figure - returned from beyond the grave for reasons unknown – in an upstairs window.

In Quotes: Heritage Park unveils new exhibit

This morning Heritage Park officially opened the Famous 5 Centre for Women - housed in a replica of the Calgary home of Nellie McClung.

The Famous 5 are McClung, Irene Parlby, Louise McKinney, Henrietta Muir Edwards and Emily Murphy who petitioned and won the right for women to be considered "Persons" under the British North America Act in 1929. Calgarians may recognize them as the five bronze statues who call the southwest corner of Olympic Plaza home.

Unwanted Guests

The list of amenities in a typical house purchase doesn't normally contain much out of the ordinary. But every now and then, homes come with something a little more strange.

Having been in the real estate business for more than 25 years, CREB® president Becky Walters has witnessed countless transactions between buyers and sellers. One instance stands out as distinctly different. Walters said the occupants of this particular home were convinced they had a ghost as a roommate.

From Small Beginnings Come Big Things

When looking at those buildings that helped shape the city we call home, sometimes the significance lies in the building itself, and sometimes it lies in its inhabitants.

In the case of the Wolffe & McVittie Cabin, an argument could be made for both.
