Carma House for Wellspring

I took some photos of Carma house yesterday and thought you might be interested in seeing this beautiful house built by Carma Developments on a wonderful lot near the Bow River and one of the bigger parks in Calgary.
the companies that work with Carma also assisted in this project. It is absolutely beautiful- the trees were left there and so it doesn't have that 'bare' look. It has some lovely gardens in the back as well as patios, and quiet places for visitors to sit. You feel like you are in the country.

The house itself is warm and welcoming, even though it is so large. The 'great' room has beautiful brown leather couches donated by LaZboy and will be wonderful for open houses, visitors etc.
We lost a friend we've known for 60 years last week and I am thinking how much this wonderful place would have meant to Jim and his family.

There are rooms for reading, counseling, yoga, art, childrens' play room, and meeting rooms, as well as good sized offices and so much more. There is going to be a bar b que pit outside, and there are two or three balconies where visitors will be able to sit and look at the beautiful landscaping. It is right across the street from a lovely park. I will let you know how the opening ceremonies go, after I attend next week. To me this wonderful place shows how much can be accomplished if people pull together to help.
