Boothbay Harbor, Maine

Architecture: David Matero Architecture

Interior Design: Owner

Builder: Derek Chapman

The owners of an old house opposite their store, Two Salty Dogs, wanted to develop the second floor and attic into a residential rental unit and the first floor into commercial space.

By adding a new gable and roof-line, a set of stairs enabled the full use of the attic for two additional bedrooms. A bridge to the floor allowed for an interesting living room.

The project also included facilities and a new, large deck for the ground floor tenant and a roof deck for the residential rental unit.
