Lunenburg, NS

The temperature with windchill today was a frigid -15F. Despite that, our three VW convoy made the hour and a half trek down from Halifax to Lunenburg to take pictures, look at viewplanes and devise a scheme for a design project in which we’re modeling the town and designing new houses for vacant lots.

The “Lunenburg Bump”- the typical 5 sided Scottish dormer of Lunenburg. Depending on the era, some are on the roof, some form awnings over the door and others form vestibules.

The city is on a very steep hill. The wind whips right up it off the ocean.
