August 2006 | Issue 8

We’re ready to make a big splash with our August edition, not just with our theme of lakeside living – including two interesting feature stories – but with the fun Trevi beach ball enclosed with every edition of this magazine.

First, it’s a whirlwind tour of Calgary’s lake communities as we look at some of the latest and some of the greatest in what’s become a very in-demand lifestyle choice for many people in these parts. People like Claudia and Gaspar, the focus of our second feature story, whose Chestermere casa  by Greenboro gives them the life they’ve dreamed of  for their family.

Our familiar line-up of regular editorial departments includes interior and exterior articles on Alberta’s own unique design industry, and an expert look at building and buying decks. Other standard departments like Gadgets & Gizmos, Around Town, Designer’s Choice, and A Brief History of …, are all back by popular demand.  

As always, we visit three great show homes in this edition. First up, Cedarglen’s new 3,000 square foot plus luxury abode in Lake Chaparral. Not to be out-done, it’s off down the Marquis of Lorne Trail to Copperleaf, where Albi Homes has their new move-up ‘Arrival’ show homes. Two super homes which feature all the attention to detail Albi is known for in just a slightly smaller home than what they usually do. Last, but certainly not least, we take one last look at the Homes by Avi Stampede Rotary Dream Home before it’s dismantled and moved to a big corner lot in Silverado.

We’re also proud to present our new ‘Advertising Feature’ portion of the magazine this edition, offering readers even more information on some of the products and services appearing in the magazine.
