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.
Goose Ledge

We visited Goose Ledge recently while we were in the neighborhood. The owners were very happy with the operation of our energy efficient home this winter. Once the landscape settles in we will come back and take more photos. Construction by Oceanside Builders.
So You Think You Know Bath

The return of  Main Street Bath's popular game show, So You Think You Know Bath is back on Saturday May 4 at the Maine Maritime Museum starting at 5:30 pm.This game show, based on the popular So You Think You Know Maine, is co-hosted by our very own Cathy Matero this year! David will be running the spot light as he has for the last 5 or 6 years. This event  is  one of the reasons we fell in love with Bath. Tickets are available here, and often sells out.
Views from the Job Site

A tricky site in Phippsburg required a lot of blasting this winter. To improve the access to this small and narrow site, ledge was removed so that parking could be designed under the Stone Barn. The studio living space above the garage and road is now connected to the summer cottage on the hill. Construction by Chartier Building and Remodeling.
Harpswell Get Away

Construction is nearing the end for Harpswell Get Away, a project that includes a two-story screen porch and a 24' wide disappearing sliding door, and a geothermal mechanical system. A few elements (sun shades, pergola and hanging bed in the screen porch) remain. Interior design by Bradley Bowden, construction by Oceanside Builders.
AIA Maine Design Awards

The AIA Maine 2019 Design Awards Celebration is being held in Brunswick this year. The Design Awards program recognizes excellence in Maine architecture and all projects submitted will be displayed at Frontier Wednesday May 18 from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. Tickets are available here.
Views from the Job Site

It's been a difficult winter for Cozy Cottage in Phippsburg waiting for the weather and then the electrical company to move some wires. But construction is moving forward by Bachman Construction.
On the Drawing Board

Taking advantages of beautiful views of the water, the existing summer cottage will remain mostly intact while a year-round addition will allow the owners to visit during the off-season. DMA designed flexibility into the plan so the cottage can be opened in the summer and rooms easily moved around to entertain family and friends.
