New House, Old Frame

This house, currently under construction is located here on the coast of Maine. The owners have presented me with an exciting challenge: design a new house of modern materials, around an historic 150 year old barn frame they have salvaged.  This magnificent frame, fully visible on the interior, is enclosed in a shell of structural insulated panels.  The siding, in keeping with the setting and the frame, is white cedar shingles. The roofing is  stand seam metal.  The walk-out basement is made of insulated concrete forms.  Banks of windows and a large deck  overlook the harbor.  A patio at ground level is blended into native granite outcroppings. I’ll be posting pictures throughout it’s construction. Come back and see the project take shape. DSCN0786
