Wabamun Lake, 2016

This beautiful custom cabin was built on Wabamun Lake by our family, for our family.  The gourmet kitchen features quartz counters, gas range and oven, dishwasher, wine fridge and walk-in pantry. From the kitchen you can overlook two seating areas – the living room enjoys a warm gas fireplace and vaulted ceilings with garden doors opening to the lake, while the sun-room boasts a 270-degree view of the lake and outdoor patio.  Throughout the home are vaulted pine ceilings and crown mouldings which add warmth and luxury.

The master bedroom has custom built-in closets and storage with garden doors that also open to the front patio and lake. Down the hallway is a full bathroom with deep soaker tub and a second bedroom that comfortably fits a queen-size bed and bunk beds with a large closet.  Upstairs is a beautiful loft overlooking the lake that sleeps 4 more people, and has a half-bath as well.

Outside, there is a large front deck as well as a covered back deck making it easy to barbeque in any weather.  Gas hook-ups on both decks make cooking dinner a breeze.  The decks are all built with long-lasting durable composite decking materials meaning there is no maintenance required.

The detached garage will be a dream of its own.  The two heated oversized parking bays are large enough to park a boat and trailer for over-winter storage, with room to spare.  Four high transom windows let lots of natural light into the bays while maintaining privacy and security.  A full bathroom with walk-in shower is available for sandy beach-dwellers who need a quick rinse.  Upstairs is a dramatic loft space for storage or future guest spaces such as a game room and will feature a gas burning stove.

As for the technical details, both buildings feature high-efficiency furnaces.  In the home there is a built-in vacuum including sweeper vents, instant hot water heater, air conditioning and security system.  Both buildings were built to be high-efficiency and low-maintenance meaning that the home is to be enjoyed, not maintained, and is comfortable in all seasons.
