Architecture Issue

Construction byOceanside Builders. Pick up your issue of MH+D at your favorite local bookstore.  Family Cottage

Views from the job site

Construction is underway by Senecal Construction Services for a project that required shoreland zoning approval. Due to the steep slope, the original footprint remained the same, but a second floor was added and bridges across grade to the main entrance. The third floor will have wonderful views looking all the way towards Popham Beach.  bridge-house2

Twisted Christmas

David and Cathy will be sharing the stage for the first (and possibly last) time on Friday & Saturday December 4 and 5. This will be David’s first time acting, as we will perform a skit for the Third Annual Twisted Christmas, a  Studio Theater of Bathproduction at the Winter Street Center, starting at 7:30 pm. Find a baby sitter and bring a friend.

The existing cottage has been moved off its foundation for the time being, and a new foundation has been partly constructed.  Once the cottage is moved back, the remaining foundation will be finished.  Cottage Living will feature a fully accessible first floor from garage to house.  Construction by Bunge Woodworks.  sab

Fix This Wall!

The deadline for the Pre-Qualification submission to fix this wall has been extended to December 15. The Design Committee of Main Street Bath has posted a request for artists who are interested in  improving this concrete wall at 13 Vine Street in Bath. This wall is the first thing visitors see coming into Bath from the north. Visit Main Street Bath for more information, including the scope of the project and the approval process. Please pass this along to someone you feel would be interested in this exciting project to help improve our cityscape.  conc

On the Drawing Board

The Harpswell Get Away also includes a boat house on the first floor and a guest house / studio on the second floor. Designed to relate to the main house, similar roof lines and dormers help to create a compound.  A walking path through the pines connects the boat house to the main house, or you could just kayak over. Construction starting soon by Oceanside Builders.  BoatHouse1
