Downeast Island Home
The DRAWING BOARD – NOV/DEC 2008
The organic, barn-like elements of this downeast island home are evident inside and out. The home’s wood shingles and dark green trim visually link it to older homes nearby, while parts of a reclaimed barn were reassembled to provide the home’s dominant living space. The aged exposed beams of the large room provide the framework for a warm, relaxed space that is anchored by a massive stone fireplace on the north wall and a wall of windows on the south; the towering windows provide expansive vistas of coastal waters.
