“We come here every day. Even if it snows. It’s not like the home in Russia. We talk of those times. They were good and they were very, very bad. But we talk of what we choose.”

As a former teacher, I created Gateway cottages for children and adolescents who love creativity and want a lifestyle of both contemplation and social interaction. A natural wood environment contributes to a feeling of warmth and great comfort. Loft railing sections and post carvings create a theme about birds - for the cottage shown.
As I walk up the stairs to my classroom, I smell the pancakes being served for breakfast down in the cafeteria and I am reminded that every day is a chance to start fresh. The floors shine with optimism.
