Here, feature builder Weber Paterson shares their approach to home building, what drew them to build at Spring Lake Ranch, and what makes The ATHABASCA such a special home design.

Who is Weber Paterson, and what sets you apart in the home building industry?

Weber Paterson is a responsive company that dedicates itself to a maximum number of projects each year so that our clients are guaranteed to receive the attention that they deserve. We aspire, not to become the biggest but, to continually strive toward being the best. Our motivation is to build unique, energy efficient homes for our clients that become a place of sanctuary in their busy lives. Weber Paterson has been offering design and construction management services to both residential and commercial clients for more than fourteen years.

What are the features of Spring Lake Ranch that drew you to building The Athabasca here?

After having spent many years building acreages for homeowners, we decided to look for unique locations and areas to design, build and sell homes. We want the flexibility to create structures that fit the landscape and have architecturally appealing features. Spring Lake Ranch’s proximity to local amenities is key but, more importantly its natural surroundings provide a great location wherein we can create homes of distinction.


Can you describe The Athabasca? What are some of the highlights of this design, and when will it be move-in ready?

Athabasca is Cree Indian for “where there are reeds,” which captures the fact it is situated on Loon Lake in the pristine development of Spring Lake Ranch. We have paid careful attention to how we situated the home on the lot to create beautiful vistas of the natural environment that surrounds it. The Athabasca was designed with a great room barrel vault that focuses the attention, of all who enter the home, toward the beauty of Loon Lake. This home will be ready for occupancy in mid-July.

What are the features of the property The Athabasca is built on?

The Home is situated on a large lot, backing onto Loon lake. With beautiful views and room to run, this acreage lot is perfect for families or those who love to garden and landscape.


What is a barrel vault, and what makes is such a special aspect of The Athabasca?

The barrel vault is an architectural feature characterized by an arched ceiling. It is relatively rare and definitely unique in residential construction applications. Historically, barrel vaults were first built by the Romans in palaces and cathedrals. The barrel vault in the Athabasca runs from the front entry right through the great room and out onto the back deck, creating a high ceiling and a focal point that brings views of the lake and the natural surroundings into the home.


You have an Open House BBQ event in June to showcase The Athabasca. What can people anticipate at this event?

Weber Paterson will be hosting a BBQ on Saturday, June 18th from 12-4 pm, and we invite everyone to come and view The Athabasca. It is a great time of year to experience the beauty of Spring Lake Ranch, walk the nature trails and enjoy a hot dog or hamburger. The builders, Rick Paterson and Darren Weber, would love to show off The Athabasca and answer any questions you may have about the house, our construction techniques and discuss future project ideas with you.
