Harpswell Get Away Boat House

Although the landscaping is not complete, the Harpswell Get Away Boat House is. On the shores of Harpswell, the boat garage offers easy access to the water. Up above, a two-bedroom guest suite opens up to beautiful views of Ridley Cove.  The interior designer, Bradley Bowden, did a great job pulling all of the finishes and colors together, and Oceanside Buildersdid a great job coming in on schedule.  The main house is next!

Sponsored by the Design Committee of Main Street Bath, we have a beautiful new piece of art to brighten our city and provide way-finding. The “Spirit of Bath, City of Ships” was painted by artist Chis Cart. This 21 foot long mural, helping to mark MSB’s 15 year anniversary, was recently unveiled to a great crowd. You can’t miss it if you enter Bath from the north, it is on the corner of Front and Vine Streets. 20160728_173743

Views from the Job Site

There’s no turning back now…in the heart of Boothbay Harbor, a tired house it getting a serious makeover.  A new, code compliant stair will bring tenants to the second floor and attic (across a bridge looking down over the living room) where there will be views of the harbor.  The first floor will remain retail or business. 20160716_153650

Over the Moon, Under the Stars

Time is running out to purchase your tickets to the biggest party in Bath on August 13. Commemorating MSB’s 15 year anniversary, there will be food, cocktails and dancing at the elegant Library Park in downtown Bath. Pat Colwell & the Soul Sensations will provide the music, you have to provide the dancing. Tickets are $50, and can be purchased by calling the MSB office at 207-442-7291, or by visiting some of our shops downtown. GALALOGO

Heritage Days

Heritage Days was a great success in town over the Fourth of July. The music continues to impress with a stages set at Library Park and the Waterfront Park. The fireworks were bigger than ever, and the parade is mobbed with spectators bordering the streets for what what seems like miles (it’s really about 1.5 miles).  The weather was perfect this year, too. Pictured is Hilton Park playing at the waterfront park. 20160702_111337

Cottage Living is nearing completion. The existing cottage was lifted and set back down on a new foundation.  Most of the expansion was towards the rear, but additional views were designed from the screen porch and deck.Bunge Woodworks did a great job working with an existing house that was not quite square. 20160805_094110

On the Drawing Board

Behind the well-known Tao Yaun Restaurant in Brunswick, the Tao Yaun Greenhouse recently received Village Review and Planning Board approval from Brunswick. This aquaponics greenhouse will house fish tanks in the basement, which help feed the plants in the green house, which then filter the water to send back down to the fish.  In between, on the first floor, will be a commercial kitchen, office and bakery/wine bar. tao
