Every year STARS has a lottery and one of the prizes in each of the major cities of the province is a house. STARS is one of the air ambulance services in our province. It also covers parts of British Columbia and Saskatchewan. There are other air ambulance services, but STARS is the biggest and is funded in large part by donations from the public and their annual lottery fundraiser.
This year my daughter and I visited the STARS home in Edmonton. We found several aspects that we really liked. Interestingly enough, the laundry is on the upper level. I spoke to another home builder who told me that is more the norm now, comprising approximately 90% of the new homes they build. I'm sure it's very convenient for young families.
Here are some of our favourite shots. Of course the decorating is done with flair.

My daughter really loved this dining set!

Neither my daughter nor I got photos of the other two bedrooms other than the clock table which was in the room decorated to suit a male child. I guess we weren't that impressed with them, eh?
