This year’s gingerbread house takes its inspiration from Bartra which is located at 28 Circular Road in St. John’s, right next door to the home on which we based last year’s gingerbread house. This beautiful home was the winner of the Newfoundland Historic Trust’s Southcott Award in 2002. It is believed to have been designed by W.F. Butler, famed for designing many of the grand Queen Ann Revival Style homes in that historic section of our capital city, including the very well known Winterholme property.

I will be posting a photo slideshow soon of the construction of the house soon, so check back to see that. As always, to view larger versions of the photos in this post, simply click on the pics.
