Goose Ledge

On a rolling site with far-away vista of Harpswell Sound, Goose Ledge is sited to maximize views and space, and bring in natural daylight. Various indoor and outdoor rooms with wonderful views allow year-round seating and entertaining potential . Unique features were designed just for the owners, such as the hidden under-stair wine storage which comes in handy during these times. Construction by Oceanside Builders.
Otter Way

Early summer completion is near at Otter Way in Brunswick. A modern take on a farmhouse, many elements about the design and layout will make this a truly unique home for our clients...especially the basement brewery. Construction by Corey Rattleff.

What started out as a banner for the college graduating seniors on our short street in Bath, Oskar and girlfriend, Isys, and neighbor Kenzie, who lives in Dunvegan, turned into a social distancing ceremony. Our friend, Jim, gave a commencement speech, and he invited a guest speaker, the president of the University of Maine, to visit and say a few words. What a wonderful surprise and memorable Corona graduation. 
Welcome Allison

Allison has been part-time the last few months and is now full time with us.
On the Drawing Board

Construction is scheduled to begin this August by Oceanside Builders for our newest project in West Bath. A beautiful site, an existing small cottage will make way for a modern, energy efficient, year-round home with a combination of wood and metal siding. The double-stud wall and triple-glazed windows will create a comfortable home for our retiring homeowners.

Stone Barn

The Stone Barn in Phippsburg has been completed by Chartier Building and Remodeling. A studio / garage project, a slat wall at the garage reduced the volume of the building but also added some intrigue to the design. We hope to have final photos sometime soon.

Views from the Job Site

Construction is underway at the Navis Cafe in the new Wex building in Portland. The clients also own the 1912 Cafe in LL Bean in Freeport. As part of the cafe, DMA designed a 20 foot curved bar. It was complicated enough that we showed up at the site will a full size plot of the bar to help the contractor, Andrew Sevigny, lay it out.
