The 2012 NW Natural Street of Dreams home show runs from July 28th to August 26th at the Vineyard, in West Linn, OR. This year, BC Custom Homes are constructing 'Rivendell Manor' - a magical storybook style home designed by Eric Schnell, of Alan Mascord Design Associates Inc. The Rivendell Manor represents the 30th home AMDA have designed for the Portland Street of Dreams show since first appearing in the show in 1987.

This home is typical of the cottage style. In modern usage, a cottage is usually a modest, often cozy dwelling, typically in a rural or semi-rural location. However there are cottage-style dwellings in cities, and in places such as Canada the term exists with no connotations of size at all (cf. vicarage or hermitage). In the United Kingdom the term cottage also tends to denote rural dwellings of traditional build, although it can also be applied to dwellings of modern construction which are designed to resemble traditional ones ("mock cottages").
Some of the features of this home are 'European'. European homes come in many guises, since the term reflects homes styled after those in many countries; English Tudor, French Country, and Dutch Gable, to name a few. Beyond the country of origin, there's also the period of history from which the style emerged; Georgian, Victorian, Greek Revival; the list is almost endless. The homes shown in the collection below feature elements inspired by those found in countries across the Atlantic.
The storybook style is a whimsical nod toward Hollywood design technically called Provincial Revivalism, and embodies much of what we see in fairy-tale storybooks, stage plays and in our favorite dreams.
