One never knows where life will take you. All we know is that it will be a journey. This journey is a story of love and beautiful Lake Talon. He grew up on the other side of the lake, she on the other side of the province. A chance meeting during her parent's Northern Ontario summer vacation and soul mates were born. Together they formed a life, for years in the south to further their careers. But the North kept calling them. The vast openness, the lack of artificial sounds, the starry nights, the sweet smell of the air and all the trees, tall old-growth white pine trees. In 1997 the opportunity to own a piece of the North offered itself in the form of this waterfront acreage on Kabuskong Bay, across from crown land, with a small cabin nestled amongst the trees. For years this served as their summer getaway. Early one morning, while sipping coffee, watching the mist rising over the warm Lake Talon waters and listening to the haunting call of a local loon family, she turned to him and vocalized what had been going through their minds for years. “Let's move here and build our dream home”. So began a labour of love. Mother Nature is so important to a true Northerner, so the lay of the land, the form of the bedrock, the trees to be removed but more critically the trees that need to stay and how that all played with the home design and the view were taken into account. Every feature of the home was thoroughly thought out down to the fine details of what was going to go in of what drawer, counter heights, door widths, room sizes, orientation for the best light, radiant heat over forced air and design for the inevitability of aging. This labour of love has become their home, a place full of joy, love and laughter. They have shared it with their children, grandchildren, friends, and family. Remember, one never knows where life will take you. After all this work, life is now taking them in a different direction, across the lake to a new adventure and a new labour of love. (id:50156)
