Cobourg (Ontario)


Evan Oxland and Joe Mitchell built this low dry stone wall a few months after this Victorian style house, over-looking Lake Ontario, was constructed in Cobourg, Ontario  last year.



The wall appears as a low retaining wall when viewed from the street, but because it rises higher than the ground it appears to be just a wall.  The decision was made to make the wall higher than what was functionally necessary, so that the occupants could see the wall from the house side too.
