We have purchased an 1835 Regency cottage (one story and attic space) made of fieldstone in Ontario. We need tips on how to go about finding the right experts to guide us in restoring the home's interior and planning for the exterior landscaping. We want to keep it true to its period.

Any suggestions on websites or e-mail addresses or who to approach?

Most urgently, we need to deal with the existing windows, our kitchen and the landscape.

Thanks,


Porticus

i don't mean to rock the boat but i didn't think 1835 was in the regency period? i thought the regent reigned until 1825? we in america got as close as georgian and the adam/federal. but the few regency houses we have came directly from england by people such as william jay how only made 2 true regency houses before modifying totally over himself. ahh actually here we had been charging at the greek revival for upwards of 10 years.
