Portions of the existing cottage have bare studs interior, as this summer cottage is not open during the winter. Where studs are covered it’s done with tongue and groove wood to keep a wood interior.
It was important for the family that the cottage remain small, not only for the charm but to stay on budget. Bedrooms are small so that there could be four private sleeping rooms. Even space under the stairs are usable for a play space.
Living spaces are opened to the spectacular view, and the open plan allows friends and family to enjoy Maine in the summer.
