Maison Drouin, St.-Famille, Quebec - 1735
|Great Canadian Heritage Treasure||
This house is a total carry over from the old country before French settlers started to adapt the house of their fathers to local Canadian condistions.
Like houses in the old country it has: a central chimney to heat the house from the centre, no overhanging eaves - no snow in Normandy - and steep pitched roof.
