About the OwnerI grew up in Confluence and graduated from Turkeyfoot High School. At about 10 years old I learned to kayak with my dad. Kayaking quickly became my passion, and I raced slalom on the US Team for 13 years. I met my husband, John, through kayaking. In 1997 we started a business making kayaking gear called Immersion Research (IR) in our basement. Eventually we moved IR into the former Confluence high school. In 2013 later purchased it. It's been a dream of ours to build a loft apartment in the building since the day we moved in. That dream finally became a reality and we are excited to share it.
