About Linda Corapi
My family is spread throughout the country, Oregon, Colorado, North Dakota, Virginia, MA and Maine. We get together once or twice a year, for a celebration, or family reunion. I sell real estate here in Maine and Massachusetts for Remax Andrew. When I’m not working I enjoy gardening, sewing, carpentry and leaded glass.
Linda Corapi purchased this House in 2003
Why Linda Corapi chose Norway
My family and I helped to build our dream home, with Joe Healey, a craftsman from Bridgton Maine, owner of Old Time Timber Framing. The kids and I lived in a tent during the summer with a solar shower and portable facilities. My sister's lake house is only 20 minutes away, so if we needed a break it was easy. My Brother's in-laws live in Fryeburg, so he's close, too. We all enjoy each others company and have similar interests so it just made sense to build a home here. Luckily I have a flexible schedule. When I was moving from my primary home to Maine, I happened to find a box of old cookbooks from my Grandmother. I knew her as living in MA, she passed away when I was 16 and I was too young to ask her about her history. I was shocked to see a cookbook from Norway Congregational Church but even more so when I saw her name on the label. Looks like I've come back to my roots. My Father loved to fish and when I was a child we rented cottages across the country. We never worried about seat belts and the station wagon had a folding seat way in the back. So we fit 6-7 kids, Mom, Dad, Nana, my aunt and the dog. Along the way we'd stop for lunch and if there was water- Dad was fishing. I can vividly remember the raccoon raiding our campsite and Dad's evening catch from the bucket. The first summer this house was built, my son and his school friend took the canoe out fishing. They were about 9. They were determined to try under the dock at the marina. Next thing I know I see them coming back in a hurry creating a wake behind the canoe. It wasn't speed that created the wake it was the big large mouth bass they couldn't take off the hook. I'd say maybe 6 lbs, (by their standards)nice and fat anyway. I learned to turn the barb down on the hook after that. It's too bad my Father wasn't around to see this home and that fish. He would have loved it here.
What makes this House unique
We never expected to love the pizza oven as much as we do. We hardly ever use the regular oven. It's the center of every party. I treat myself to grilled fish, steak and small little baked dishes. My Son loves to cook ribs with his special barbecue sauce and my Daughter has mastered my Brother's pizza dough recipe. We've made the entire Thanksgiving dinner in the one oven. Including the pies. It stays hot for hours. You can use all the leftover pizza toppings for quiche the next morning and usually it just takes a small fire to bring it back up to 375, if it's not hot enough. One year I hosted my Nephews wedding party and served 22 pizzas and a few calzones. The first winter we were here it snowed almost every day. We love it. We live on a private road so I can cross- country ski on the trails in our neighborhood without worrying about snowmobiles being on the same route. The snowmobile trail goes down our road and across the street, or across the lake depending on the direction you're headed. You can access route 89 a major snowmobile route in the state. It's breathtaking to see the forest covered in snow, especially riding through a pine grove, or crossing a bridge in the swamp on a warm winter day, or the view from the hill on the golf course that overlooks the lake. Sometimes the snow is so deep it almost touches the porch roof. During the summer when the kids were young all I did was tow them on the big water tube. Luckily we don't have a lot of boating traffic and there's enough room for everyone to have their own space. As far as nature is concerned: the last couple of years we've seen eagles nesting, otters, wood ducks, deer, foxes, some type of cat, turkeys,....The loons usually nest somewhere near our house, and the occasional Great Blue Herring will perch near the water. We have a range of woodpeckers, from Pileated to Flickers. Our feeders keep the finches, nuthatches and chickadees . A strecked owl has been nesting a tree outside.
