Goose Rock Guest House

A clean and contemporary aesthetic define the design of this 400 sf Goose Rock Guest Cottage, with hints of natural and painted wood to provide some softness and evoke some of the original charm.  The exterior, clad in black clapboard siding, black windows and black roof, provide a contrast to the white interior, which acts as a clean backdrop to the owner's artwork. Construction by Corey Rattleff.

Views from the Job Site

Under construction by Rideout & Turner, Homewood Bound is DMA's third project in this home association in Yarmouth. Designed to fit into the neighborhood of cottage style architecture with cedar shingles, interesting texture changes, and a curved roof. Dormers above the high-ceilinged living room will bring high light into the cottage.

World Cup Qualifier

David took a quick trip to Columbus, Ohio a couple of weeks ago to cheer on the USA Men's team against Mexico in the first game of the Hex. The USA lost 1-2 (and looked even worse a few days later vs Costa Rica). They are now are surprisingly close to loosing a grasp on a World Cup berth. Maybe a coaching change will help...The score was disappointing, but the chance to hang out with soccer friends from around the USA is always worth it.

Views from the job site

It's getting exciting at the Harpswell Get Away jobsite as Copp Excavating raised the existing cottage so that a new foundation could be installed beneath it. Shoreland zoning regulations allows a certain amount of expansion even though the house is close to the water. Construction by Oceanside Builders.

On the Drawing Board

On a rolling site with far-away views of the water, the Goose Ledge House of around 2,400 house with triple-glazed windows, double thick walls and a geothermal heating/cooling system sits at the edge of a rocky slope. Construction by Oceanside Builders.
