Kim Martin Elder This corner looks familiar…😀

Jeremy Stinson-– If I was informed correctly, (it was before my time) Johanson Construction built the first few homes, and had already set prices… I want o say all the homes South of Brown street had to be blasted to get their basements in. Johansson went under and Iber took over.


Linda Gallipeau-Johnston I think I told the story of Mr. Kettles blasting out on Pattie Drive when on one blast the stone absolutely rained down on the existing houses and all the men were out having quite a hee haw at what just happened – quality you say!!!!

Ray Paquette The late Mayor Brian Costello once explained to me the development problems experienced by the original builder and how the Town had to take over the completion of the services to the sub-division and the sale of the remaining lots to Iber Construction of Stittsville from whom I purchased a home. Many of my neighbours living in what was referred to as “Johanssen Homes” purchased their homes from the Town in various states of completion and finished the homes. Perhaps some of your correspondents can add more to the story of “the Manor”.


Tim McIntyre-Ours was built by Iber Homes– And we formed a committee to obtain a grant from the province to build the park



Shannon Strike That was a great place to grow up
