West Bath, Maine
Much of the interior finish was used as rooms were opened up to create more open plan concept. Most importantly, the kitchen was designed to integrate entertaining and cooking with two large islands and purposeful drawers and cabinets. Andirons were recycled into pot racks, and a custom finish on the cabinets was matched from found driftwood.
The large stone fireplace is used to separate the living room from the dining room, and elements like the box window is used to display a large model boat. The exterior massing was greatly reduced by adding brackets and a metal roof, and the new entrance porch welcomes guests as part of a less imposing façade. The project was feathered in the October issue of Décor Maine magazine.
