12 NORTH COUNTY JULY 3-10, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER | SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER EDITION counters where ice cream will be served. He said his thought process in design and creating is often out of the box in that way. "My specialty is making things look ancient," Paul said. Often, his designs have "ancient" beginnings to start. His home, for example, is a circa 1820 barn repur- posed into a home. From the outside, Paul's home is an unassuming barn similar to many seen on Scituate back roads. Inside, the home gleams with antique wooden fur- nishing, rustic farm tables and an open loft overlooking the two-story barn. "It was always my dream to live in a barn and create this ancient looking place with a clean, modern feel," Paul said. For more information on Paul, his art and his handmade furniture, visit . Brigido's ice cream shop, tentatively named Moose Tracks Confections, is slated to open in late August and will serve ice cream from the Ice Cream Machine in Cumberland, as well as other confections.

Paolucci said the plans at LaPerche leave an area for pos- sible expansion should Smithfield grow in size or the state pass man- datory pre-K in Rhode Island. Old County Road Elementary School The Stage III designs for OCRS, 200 Old County Road, are more comparable to the other schools than in Stage II designs, Paolucci said. More space will be added to the school to make room for the library, the main office and music rooms. "That's where we get to design new space for specific use instead of trying to refurbish old space that really doesn't fit. It makes more sense that way," Paolucci said. Paolucci said the school will have more space for reading and small group instruction, which she said was not seen in the old design. The stages will be removed in the cafeteria for better use of the space, and will use portable bleachers that can be stored in the gymnasium. Impressive work, says Paolucci Paolucci commended DBVW and Colliers for the improvements and design plans at each building. "I'm really impressed with what they've done so far. They're listen- ing," Paolucci said. All schools will receive upgraded ADA compliant entryways and will receive air treatment improve- ments. Bathrooms have not been upgraded yet, as designers are waiting for RIDE approval before moving forward with schematic designs. The Building Committee expects to receive them by the middle of this month.
