Welcome to our newsletter, once a month we will update you with news about David Matero Architecture and our community. We welcome your comments, questions and feedback.
Buddy's Barrel House

A new gable and roof line allowed for new stairs to the second floor and attic for views of the Boothbay Harbor, as well as two extra bedrooms. Designed to be 3-bedroom residential rental unit, Buddy's Barrel House, also has income generating commercial space on the first floor. Construction by Derek Chapman.

After struggling with ledge, including blasting, jack hammers, and pneumatic hammers, concrete footings have just been started at Dunvegan. Certainly all of the neighbors in Bath are happy the sounds of summer have subsided.
Views from the job site

Brick veneer and precast concrete continues to be installed at the Patriot Insurance Company corporate headquarters. All but one set of windows have been installed (a set of triple windows are being used to bring in material). The contractors,  Landry/French, recently flew a drone around the site and can be viewed here from our facebook page.

Harpswell Get Away

We are very excited to see progress at Harpswell Get Away, as the views throughout this house are wonderful. All but the trapezoid windows have been installed, and siding is just beginning. Construction by Oceanside Builders.

Munjoy House

The Munjoy House in Portland has been gutted so that it can be properly reconstructed and re-supported. A fire back in the 1950's caused extensive damage, and after 60 years, it can now be properly repaired.

MSB Heritage Days

The Main Street Bath Heritage Days was a great success over Independence Day. The weather cooperated, the parade route was packed with spectators, and the music throughout the city was local and good. The highlight of the week were the Mallett Brothers Band, with their father, singer/songwriter, Dave Mallett, making a surprise appearance.
Round the Pond

Shoreland restrictions established by DEP can create some challenges, especially on a very steep site. Out of these challenges can be a creative approach to designing an addition to a cottage, and also solving a problem of how to enter the home. DMA is at the preliminary design stage.
