Scope and content:
This project series documents additions and alterations to the McCutcheon Residence in Gormley, Ontario (now Whitchurch-Stouffville, Ontario) from 1981-1982. The office identified the project number as 8112.
This project consisted primarily of a large addition onto the east side of the existing brick house. The first part of the addition, attached directly onto the existing house, was two storeys to match the original, and contained the master bedroom and sitting room on the second floor, a large kitchen with walk-in pantry and dining area on the main floor, and storage in the basement. The second part of the addition ran perpendicular to the rest of the house, attached to the new kitchen, and was one storey. It contained the staff quarters at the front of the house, and two garages at the back, including one for skidoos and tractors. Alterations to the current home were also made, including the removal of the patio at the back of the home and of the walls that enclosed the existing pool and kitchen. The addition used similar materials to the existing home, which included cedar shingles, brick walls, and copper roofing over the windows.
The project is recorded through drawings, photographic materials and textual records dating from 1981-1982. The drawings consist of sketches, floor and site plans, elevations, sections, and mechanical, electrical and structural drawings. Drawings of the existing home are also present. The photographs are of aerial views of the house and surrounding area and textual records consist of contractor documentation.
