The homeowners worked closely with Whitten Architects of
Portland and Merrymeeting Builders of Topsham to design and
construct a comfortable and sustainable home that blurs the lines
between indoors and out. A wall of sliding doors by Marvin Design
Gallery connects the open-plan living area and outdoor room—or
“sun pocket”—planted with a young garden designed to attract
and nourish bees, migratory birds, and butterflies.
