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.
The Eyrie

The Eyrie was completed a couple years ago by Bachman Construction, but now the landscaping is taking shape. We went out recently to update some of our exterior photos. The owner is very happy with the performance of this small home (main level 750 sf with a studio basement) and still loves the design. A heat pump on each floor is all it takes.
Belted Cow 

Belted Cow is out of the ground in Cumberland. At 14,000 sf, the design of the one-story building was influenced by large barn structures and includes elements like high spaces and dormers to break up the large fa├žade. Construction by Landry/French Construction.
Views from the Job Site

Ground is broken and construction is underway in Georgetown by Chartier Building and RemodelingAlthough there is a traditional look to this house, the energy efficiency of this house will be anything but "traditional." The well insulated envelope and triple pane windows will create a very quiet and comfortable home.
Women's World Cup in France

David, Oskar and I are back from an epic family vacation following the USA Women's World Cup team in France. We were able to see US beat Chile and Sweden as they try for a repeat World Cup win. Along with 5 other families, we spent time in the south of France (Saux), Paris, and Normandy (Le Havre and Honfleur). David's blog is here.
Project Wrap Up

Harpswell Get Away is coming to a close. This has been one of our favorite projects and a great opportunity to work with a wonderful team. Interior design by Bradley Bowden and builder, Oceanside Builders. There are many special features in this house, including a two-story screen porch and a 24' long sliding disappearing door on the water.
Heritage Days

Bath's largest celebration, Heritage Days, starts Wednesday July 3 and goes through Sunday July 7. Events are happening all around the city, and 30 bands play between the Waterfront and Library Park, all music is free. Pictured is our friends' band, Chunkk, scheduled at the Waterfront Park Thursday after the parade at 2pm. Oh, and there are 2 evenings of fireworks!
On the Drawing Board

Otter Way will soon be under construction by Cory Rattleff. A 2,000 sf modern farm house in Brunswick, this is not your typical farm house with triple-glazed windows and a great envelope. No more curling up with a book in the winter time wrapped in a wool blanket - unless you feel like it.
