Couple’s Cottage

A very tight building envelope with strict shoreland zoning restrictions, the owners were looking for a contemporary approach to a small and energy efficient retreat. At 1,000 sf, the orientation and large, summer-shaded windows bring in an abundant of natural light. The exterior features cedar shiplap siding contrasted with vertical corrugated metal siding.

AIA Visits Bath

The American Institute of Architects’ Design and Resiliency Team will be in Bath this week to facilitate a public process focused on our community and how climate change may impact the character of Bath.

A community discussion forum will be held Monday November 3 from 6:30 to 8pm at the Bath City Hall, and then a Community Presentation will be held on Wednesday November 5 from 6:30 to 8pm. All are welcome to attend.

Soapstone countertops were just installed by Morningstar Stone and Tile at the Eyrie in North Bath. A small, open kitchen concept, the cabinetry and shelving was constructed by Fiddlehead Designs. Very little remains to be constructed on the interior, and now we are waiting for the hardscaping to be completed. Construction by Bachman Construction IMG_6508
