We are offering ONE OF A KIND driveway gates like this one we just designed and have started to build
The eagle will be LIFE SIZE – a large eagle descending onto his nest on the cedar gate
First to the welding shop to fabricate the metal portion(s) of the gate
We turned to the father and son team to complete this task. This was the team that hand forged, repaired
and replaced all the metal on the 1886 horse carriage restoration.
We have just taken delivery of an 1886 horse carriage, to be restored to its former glory!
February 7, 2016: The carriage was delivered.
This horse – drawn passenger vehicle was owned by the Green Family
from 1887 until Frank Green’s death in 1946. From 1946 until 1955 it
remained in the old barn, when it was given to Gerry Wellburn, whose
collection of artifacts eventually became the Forest Museum in Duncan.
The Democrat was used for many years as the main source of transportation
from Duncan to Lake Cowichan, bringing guests to the Riverside Hotel and
Greendale. A one way trip took 4 hours necessitating an overnight stay in
Duncan so Frank Green could meet the morning train from Victoria.
