Progress Photos

The Ranch Make Over came out great, according to the owners. Rideout and Turner did a wonderful job integrating new and old, and totally transformed this house. The beautiful Cherry cabinets by Fiddlehead Designs compliment the construction, and the wet bar is not bad either. Wirth-01

European Vacation

To celebrate David’s birthday, and with our son leaving for college next year, we embarked on a 10-day vacation to Prague and Berlin. David has always wanted to visit the historic city of Prague, which survived much of the bombing of WWII. Berlin, just a train ride away, was an interesting contrast to Prague, and really delivered a fun-filled vacation. To see some of David’s photos from our trip, click here.

Bath’s newest restaurant, Salt Pine Social, is well underway by Burnham and Lobozzo. The owner’s of El Camino Cantina in Brunswick have invested in Bath with their total renovation of a building that really needed someone to come in and make vast improvements. 20160428_063243

King Lear

Cathy’s latest show opened last weekend at the Chocolate Church Arts Center in Bath. Many consider King Lear to be Shakespeare’s finest tragedy. Two more shows Friday and Saturday, don’t miss the Doctor in the play, and don’t miss Gordon Adams as King Lear. King-Lear-Shakespeare400-e1461171534646


The highlight for David was Cathy somehow obtaining sold-out tickets (13th row!) to a Bundesliga game at the 75,000 seat Olympic Stadium in Berlin. The local team, Hertha BSC, currently in 4th place in the German league, faced mighty Bayern Munich which is very close to winning their 4th straight league championship. Despite a 2-0 loss to the home team, the atmosphere was electric. Click here to see a 2 minute video of the beginning of the game.

The Harpswell Get Away Boat House is scheduled for completion next month. Windows are in, and siding is almost done. The interior, by Bradley Bowden Design, LLC, is going to make for beautiful cottage living. Construction by Oceanside Builders, LLC. 20160429_145640

On the Drawing Board

Currently in the permitting process, the Harpswell Get Away main house will soon be lifted so a legitimate foundation can be installed under it, as well as raise the floor even more out of the flood plain. A shoreland zoning project, DMA utilized the footprint and was limited in the expansion potential. Construction by Oceanside Builders, LLC. Wilson---Rendering-model---March24-0-2016-03-25-17144600000
