There have been a number of visitors who have bought homes in the area and many others who have been fortunate enough to buy a suitable piece of land upon which to build a house. Most new builds are designed to complement the heritage architecture of the area. This is due in part to the fact that there is an individual living in the area, Frank LaPointe, who is an outstanding visual artist and designer and he is continually dealing with new clients wishing to build. There are many examples of his work to be seen in the area including the four primary buildings at Fisherís Loft.
