A common sight along Rideau roads are what I call "T-Houses". These are farm houses that started small, facing the road (the front of the house is on the right, facing the road), and as families grew, additions were made, most often at the back of the house, creating the shape of a T. In this picture we can see 3 generations, the original house in stone, an addition with a different type of stonework, and a later wood frame addition (the barn & silo are separate structures behind the house).
See how many of these types of houses you can spot as you drive Rideau highways and byways.
