VIRTUAL HOME TOURS

A COLOR THROW-DOWN

B

ecause of the pandemic,

our staff has yet to meet our new (as of the January 2021 issue) art director, Tim Hussey. But it has become apparent that his personality is plenty big enough to supersede a mere computer screen. In the six months that we have worked with Tim, our editorial team has come to adore both his graphic design and Tim Hussey in his painting studio. his wicked sense of humor. We also all admit: Tim is the best headline writer we’ve ever met. Tim’s art resume runs deep—a BA from the Rhode Island School of Design, (including a junior year abroad at Parsons, Paris) and illustrations for the likes of Rolling Stone, GQ and The New York Times. He is also a contemporary painter, exhibiting in galleries in major cities across the United States, including Los Angeles, Nashville, Detroit and New York. I’ve come to know Tim as one of the most open, supportive and collaborative spirits I’ve ever worked with. Given that and his deep color sense, I decided to pick Tim’s brain for our Northern Moods department. In this section, we present home elements based around a color theme. I felt that the department craved more color inspiration than I (a mere words person) can give it. Tim was game for choosing the colors. When I asked him about the process of choosing them, he wrote this to me: “I sit and think about how those months feel—visually and emotionally. I think about temperature, foliage and the food and drinks that come around in those months. I also look at my paintings that were done in that time period and consider how the seasons affected my color choices. Once I choose a color, I put it next to the second color and invariably they need adjusting to work with each other.” This issue’s Northern Moods department showcases Tim’s first color throw-down: Deep blue and hot coral—shades of which he created himself. Deep blue for water, hot coral for that particular shade of pinky-orange in a summer sunset or in a beach stone that you just can’t resist picking up. My job then was to sleuth home elements that echo these colors. It was a challenge, but one I enjoyed. See what you think of our collaboration! And, as always, have fun immersing yourself in the photos and stories of the three gorgeous Northern Michigan homes we cover in this issue.

CornuFé Range Americans have waited more than a century for La Cornue, a French company established in 1908, to come out with a range that fits their budget and doesn't sacrifice quality or style. Say bonjour to the CornuFé. Kitchen designer Liz Firebaugh of Signature Kitchens has one in her own home: “It’s super user-friendly and I love the roomy oven,” she says. Like its larger sibling, the La Cornue, the CornuFé comes in mouthwatering colors. Personally, we yearn to dive into this royal blue model. Available through Signature Kitchens (signaturekitchensonline.com) and Big George’s/Witbeck (big-georges.com), both in Petoskey. Prices vary with options.

WINDOW VIGNETTES Three designers demonstrate that how you look out on the world can shape your frame of mind. By Elizabeth Edwards

FRESH TAKE ON THE AWNING WINDOW Architectural Designer: Frederick Crosley Ball frederickcrosleyball.com Builder: Scott Kennard, Wentworth Builders wentworthbuilders.com

SMALL AWNING WINDOWS are most often used as transoms—above doors or other, larger windows. But in this striking take on rustic design in a home on Walloon Lake, architectural designer Frederick Crosley Ball and builder Scott Kennard of Wentworth Builders quilted mullioned awning windows into one glorious windowwall. As Kennard explains: “They perform well as a wall of smaller windows because you can really control the breeze and airflow through the house by opening specific windows to let the hot air out and the cool breeze in. Additionally, they create an interesting pattern and architectural rhythm. Each window creates its own framed story, from the sky to the wooded landscape and the beauty of Walloon Lake.”

SPEAKING BOTH TO the inspiration behind this bank of windows in a Torch Lake home of his design, as well as to a larger, regional sense, architect Ken Richmond says: “These windows represent a cleaner, bolder, industrial edge to the Northern Michigan cottage vernacular than we are used to seeing.” Richmond finds the roots of that industrial edge in the region’s historic and iconic work buildings. “There is no denying the role boat shops and boatyard sheds, with their huge glass overhead doors, contribute to this style. These building parts add to the depth of the character that uniquely defines our Up North architecture. They contribute to our admirable architectural heritage that makes this place memorable.”

on Glen Lake, architect Ray Kendra knew that big windows were going to be needed. “We primarily were focused on creating large and uninterrupted views of the lake,” Kendra says. “We also chose aluminum windows (which means aluminum inside and out) to fit the modern sensibilities of the design both on the interior and exterior.” The home now reaches just a little closer to Glen Lake’s brilliant shores, and the expansive-framed windows flood the living space with southern light and blue-water views.

THE LONE RANGER COTTAGE

I

f you are too young to remember

the Lone Ranger, here is a lesson from an oldster: Sometimes known as The Masked Man, he was the lead character in a radio (and later a television) program  that launched on Detroit station WXYZ in 1933. As the plot goes, John Reid, a Texas Ranger, was the lone survivor of an ambush by outlaws. He was befriended by a Native American man by the name of Tonto. Each episode of the series had the Lone Ranger (whom Tonto called Kee-MoSah-Bee, a loose translation being Trusty Scout) and Tonto bringing justice to the Wild West. The Lone Ranger always wore a mask, rode a horse named Silver  and shot silver bullets. He never smoked, drank, cussed or shot to kill. Cue the “William Tell Overture” (the show’s theme music) and a hearty “Hi-Yo, Silver, away!” (the Lone Ranger’s cry as he galloped off on Silver)—this plot has a Northern Michigan twist. From 1911 to 1941, Chief (Charles) Yeager, who was part Native American, and his wife, known as Gram Yeager,  ran a boys camp on the shore of Mullett Lake near Cheboygan. The camp was initially called Kee-Mo-Sah-Bee and later renamed Lone Ranger Camp  with a masked man logo. Tonto, a man in Native American  garb and authentic headdress, was a regular visitor to camp bonfires. The boys, most of whom  came from Chicago and Detroit on a train that dropped them literally at the camp gate, were taught upstanding character values. One of the campers was James Jewell, who grew up to be Chief and Gram Yeager’s son-in-law—and also the first drama director for the Lone Ranger radio show. No doubt, Jewell imported the term Kee-Mo-SahBee and  many of  the  camp’s  concepts  and

lore to the new show. In 1949, Ernie and Vi Walter purchased from the Yeagers 185  feet of Mullett Lake shoreline that had once been a part of the camp and built a large cottage so there would be plenty of room for their own family, plus extended family and friends. Over the course of many summers, the Walter family became close friends with Chief and Gram Yeager. When the Yeagers died, the Walters purchased the remaining 100 feet of the camp  property. The Walter family continued summering in the  former  cottage that Ernie Walter built, which they affectionately referred to as “Ernie’s Hobby,” even after Ernie and Vi passed on. Eventually, the cottage fell to the Walters’ daughters, Jackie Keller and her husband, Paul, and  Kathy  Smith and her husband, Gates. The two couples made a list of all the upgrades that were needed for the nearly 70-year-old cottage and  decided  that the time had come to take down the  original cottage and build a new one. On their wish list was a high-quality, low-maintenance home large enough to house all the family members and friends that visit over the summer. The new home also had to honor the spirit of Ernie and Vi, as well as, as it turned out, Kathy, who passed away during the initial planning stages. And, of course, it was only fitting that the home include memories of Lone Ranger Camp. But who to  build it? By all accounts, Paul Keller is a perfectionist who doesn’t make a decision until he has researched all the possibilities to find the best  option. On his morning runs along the old railroad track that once brought boys to  the  camp, Paul  often  passed a newly built home that he admired. One day he stopped and asked  a friend who built it. The friend told him it was Brett Bandi of Bandi Builders. The Kellers and Smiths made sure that Bandi was one of several builders they interviewed for the project, and they were impressed with him from the start. “We really hit it off when we met with him,” Jackie says. Bandi felt similarly. “They are really nice family people,” he says. “I met their family on various visits and I could tell that family was a major driver for them and that this was going to be a family heirloom cottage and legacy for their kids and grandkids.” The Kellers and Smiths also interviewed several architects, including Stephanie Baldwin

of Edgewater Design Group, who had been the architect on the Bandi home that Paul first saw. The Keller/Smith family left the meeting with Baldwin convinced that she was the designer to translate their dream into a blueprint. Indeed, the cottage that Baldwin designed for them feels as though it has sat on Mullett Lake since the Camp Kee-Mo-Sah-Bee days. The exterior, clad in stone and lovely cedar-colored shake, is also adorned with a number of traditional cottage details, including rafter tails, embellished gables, white moldings and even a cupola. All that vintage style, however, belies modern, low-maintenance materials including polymer shake and trim, with limestone and granite. Inside, Baldwin managed to tuck in six bedrooms (including two master suites), an office with a Murphy bed and six full bathrooms. A bonus sleeping area over the garage offers even more room for guests. “Each room is a little different—everyone got to choose the finishes they wanted, so some of the rooms have barn-wood, some pine, some beams, and there is a mix of paint color,” Baldwin explains. An upstairs living area accommodates the family’s younger generation. She also designed an airy sunroom of glass that brings the outdoors in. NHC

To enhance the home’s nostalgic feel, Bandi project manager Alex Navidzadeh and the family salvaged elements from the old cottage and repurposed them. They incorporated some of the old cottage’s oak paneling into a barn-style door and made an end table out of the original kitchen countertop. To add a whimsical touch, they embedded Pewabic tiles and stones into some of the showers. They also salvaged the decaying stone pillars that once marked the entrance to Camp Lone Ranger. The heart of the home is the first-floor great room with its vaulted ceiling, cedar beams, upperlevel bridge and stone fireplace that reaches to the ceiling. A floor-to-ceiling bank of windows makes the most important view, that of Mullett Lake, front and center. Meanwhile, across the room, hung on a prominent wall, is a blown-up, very old photo of the man who played Tonto at Camp Kee-Mo-Sah-Bee— his placid gaze reminding all who stay at the home to be trusty scouts.

is reading right out of a storybook when she tells the story of her childhood summers at her grandparents’ cottage in Quebec. Every June, Megan, her sister Melanie and their parents, John and Margaret Faulkner, headed from their Michigan home to Quebec to spend time with their extended family. “It was always about family and everybody being together,” Megan says. “There were times that we’d have 12 to 15 family members up there—huge gatherings and we just loved them. “We are all about cottage life,” Megan continues. “We love the camaraderie of family campfires, staying up late and playing games, spending time on the lake—and the whole outdoors experience. When it’s chilly, you build a fire…” Then one summer the extended family had become too large to accommodate everyone at the Quebec cottage at once, and Megan and Melanie felt the end of an era had come. By this time, Megan and her husband, Wade, lived in Texas, and Melanie and her husband, Bob, lived in southern Michigan. They

“WE ARE ALL ABOUT COTTAGE LIFE,” MEGAN SAYS. “WE LOVE THE CAMARADERIE OF FAMILY CAMPFIRES, STAYING UP LATE AND PLAYING GAMES AND SPENDING TIME ON THE LAKE.” decided to rent a cottage on a lake near Cadillac with their parents—and look at real estate in the area so that they could begin a new cottaging tradition in Northern Michigan. They scouted properties for several days, but nothing felt just right. Then one day, Megan remembers, everyone was gathered on the back porch of their rental cottage and she decided to check Craigslist. A property on Spider Lake outside of Traverse City popped up. They decided to have a look. Once at the property, the family knew immediately that they’d found the site of their new cottage. Spider Lake had the same wooded, remote feeling that their lake in Quebec had. The property was at the end of an access road, just like the Quebec cottage had been. Add to those features the fact that the property’s sellers were a long-time Spider Lake family who still live on the lake and were hoping to find buyers who appreciated the lake’s cottaging lifestyle. Sold. Megan describes herself as one who doesn't let grass grow under her feet, so she launched a search for an architect (which included perusing back issues of Northern Home & Cottage!) that ended with the family hiring Joseph Mosey. After Joe asked them for examples of features they wanted, they came back to him with a few basic concepts: They didn’t want a cathedral ceiling in the great room. Instead, they wanted the intimacy of a defined kitchen and living and dining rooms—yet they

wanted the rooms to flow into each other. They all have dogs; they wanted a dog shower. And that kitchen? It had to be laid out precisely to Megan’s specifications—a wish that she credits Joe for taking seriously. “I love to cook and I am very particular about how my kitchen works,” she says. “Joe listened.” The family was willing to trust Joe on the exterior and the precise layout of the home, only expressing their wish for the home to feel cottagey and fit into the site. The end product, with its mossy-green siding and stone foundation, blends sweetly into its setting. “The house draws its rustic cues from the wooded setting and introduces balance and order amid the randomness of the forest,” Joe explains. “The design of the house is extremely sitespecific,” he continues. “It follows the lake’s shoreline and the rooms are set up to capture the distinctly different views of the lake.

room looks out to the widest and more public part of the lake, while the screened porch on one side and the master suite on the other have views of more quiet, private coves. The different views unfold and change as you move through the spaces, allowing you to experience the entire amazing site.” Eric Render and his team at Render Construction built the home. “He is so easy to work with,” Megan says of Eric. “What we appreciated about him the most was his honesty about the cost. Even before he’d put one shovel in the ground, he told us that we were over budget and we needed to adjust the plan. His building team was amazing—such good workers, such nice people. I could sing their praises all day.” But the greatest gift Eric gave the family was speed. Sadly, John Faulkner was diagnosed with dementia just as construction began in the fall of 2014. The sisters put the push on Eric to finish the job by the summer of 2015. “We wanted to make memories in the cottage with our father while he could still remember,” Megan says. Eric came through, and the family gathered in their new Spider Lake cottage by August. And yes, there were late-night games, canoe and kayak paddles and s’mores built and eaten over the fire—that summer and summers since. For this family, cottaging, the next chapter, continues.

ucky for doug and michelle may, doug’s parents discovered Onekama in the 1980s. Pronounced Oh-nek-ama and known as the “two-lake town” for its frontage on both Portage Lake and Lake Michigan (connected to each other by a channel), Onekama is as picturesque as it is peaceful. Doug’s parents bought and renovated a retirement home on Portage Lake—a beloved place where Doug, Michelle and their children spent many idyllic summers. Fast-forward three decades. Michelle and Doug were making plans to retire and there was no question Portage Lake would be the place. So, when a lot four doors down from the family home went up for sale, Doug and Michelle decided to build their dream home from scratch. For the design, the couple connected with Doug Leahy of GETA Design in Birmingham, Michigan. “We shared our version of a modern farmhouse with him and we felt like he understood our vision and made it a reality,” Doug May says of Leahy. On the May’s wish list was a clutterfree, clean-lined home that, as Michelle says, lets the lake view “do the talking.” Within that vision, they imagined

a color palette of muted gray tones, minimal trim and molding and “hardwood and tile throughout,” she adds. Knowing they were looking for a builder, Doug’s brother introduced them to a family acquaintance, Joel Peterson, owner of J. Peterson Homes. Widely regarded as one of the finest builders on the west side of the state, Peterson traveled to the Mays’ home in Midland to meet with them. The couple hired him and are glad they did, noting how pleasant working with Joel was throughout the process.

The Mays also worked with Missy Walters, owner of Studio M Interiors of Grand Rapids, for the interior colors and finishes, including finding just the right stains for the handsome beams and maple cabinetry, and choosing the kitchen and bathroom tile. TruKitchens, also in Grand Rapids, helped with the kitchen design, which includes twin islands (one for prep, the other for entertaining) topped in double-thick quartz. A built-in footrest for people seated at the counter is a small touch that the Mays say makes the counter-seating much more comfortable. The custom steel hood over the Wolf range, in addition to the steel staircase and the great room and master bedroom fireplaces, all bring industrial elements to the home. The finished home is everything the Mays wanted and more. Among their favorite features are a paneled (and hidden) door, tucked between the paneled refrigerator and freezer, that leads to a pantry and then to the back hallway—making unloading groceries a breeze. They also love their three-season porch that has powered-nano screens for warm, buggy days, NHC

and powered-vinyl walls and ceiling heaters for chilly days. The stunning glass wine room, set between the kitchen and the dining room, is another head-turner. The room is mostly outfitted with their wine-finds from the many trips to Napa they’ve taken with good friends. There’s another spot in this home, however, that is equally important to this family. The enclave is created by four club chairs clustered around a small table tucked in a

corner of the great room. The Mays patterned the idea of having a special place to gather and chat (especially with their children) after Starbucks’ comfortable coffeehouse concept. A friend who is a graphic artist even created a “Maybucks” poster (a takeoff on the Starbucks logo) that now hangs near the enclave. “Some of the greatest conversations have happened in these four chairs over a nice coffee or a great bottle of wine,” Doug says.
