Gwen and Bill had been dreaming of building a unique home on their lakefront property for years. Located just a few hours away from their primary home in Manning, Alberta, the couple was looking for a building style that would enhance the natural beauty of their waterfront build site. Loving the elegance of traditional timber framing, they turned to Riverbend. Working alongside their designer, they created a custom design that embraced both their personal wants and the pristine surroundings.
When the couple met with their Riverbend designer, they were adamant about creating a design that took advantage of their lakefront views, both within the home and out. Bill and Gwen also knew that they needed the Alberta home’s design to work with their sloping, waterfront lot. Their designer took that vision and created a concept that worked with their specific location and views. This included plenty of deck space above, and a covered outdoor living space and fire pit below.
Aside from their love for the outdoors, the couple also expressed an emphasis on family interaction. With the couple constantly traveling, they wanted a place to share with their children and grandchildren on weekends and during the holidays. To accommodate this desire, they included a separate loft apartment above the garage. In addition, they added a fully finished walkout basement with additional bedrooms.
The completed Alberta home is an architectural gem from the distinct stone and windowed prow protruding towards the waterfront, to the timber trusses that add authenticity and depth to the main living spaces. This home stands as an inviting beacon of warmth and comfort on even the coldest of Canada’s winter nights.
