This Breezy Country Home Comes Complete With its Own Nordic Spa

When landscape designer Joel Loblaw and his wife, furniture designer Michelle Loblaw, purchased their Meaford, Ont. property, it was little more than wind-swept plot of land. For years, they camped out in a bunky without power or running water. It was a peaceful refuge from life in Toronto, but after a while they were tired of roughing it. They hired architect Brian O’Brian (yes, that’s his real name) to design a new space. Their wish list included a breezeway, an emphasis on natural materials and a clear separation between the sleeping quarters and living space. When Brian O’Brian presented his blueprints to the couple, they were blown away. As Joel put it: “He killed it. He really killed it.”
