The old West Bath Yacht Club became a wonderful summer home for owners who discovered it on their anniversary. Known as Ledgemere, this imposing house's exterior was broken up in scale by adding a new entrance and roof forms. The interior was opened up  to emphasize a new heart of the home, the kitchen, that has 2 large islands, one for cooking, one for socializing. Construction by Oceanside Builders.

Breezy Bluff has a unique position at the top of a rocky bluff with stunning views of Casco Bay. The renovation / addition takes advantage of these views with a new screen porch and large windows from every room. We are working closely with the owner's interior designer, Catherine Honeycomb. Construction by John Totman.
Decor Maine

DMA's Ledgemere project was featured in the latest issue of Decor Maine that includes photography by Jeff Roberts Imaging and writing by Debra Spark. Decor Maine is a new shelter magazine that has recently started in Maine. You can find the magazine at your local newstand or their website.
Studio Theatre of Bath

Gearing up for the holidays, Studio of Theatre of Bath has a couple of fun upcoming shows. Starting with the reboot of The Doppelbloopers, Bath's best improv comedy goup which took the summer off for some other events, the show will be December 1 at the Bath Golf Club. Tickets are available soon at

The sixth annual STB Christmas show at Winter Street Center, Twisted Christmas, will be an evening of music, merriment and improv, and a night to leave the kids at home. Tickets for Twisted Christmas are available here for two shows, December 15 and 16.

The Bridge House in Georgetown has been completed by Senecal Construction Services. Due to shoreland zoning restrictions, the addition needed to be set back from the water. DMA utilized the steep slope by bridging from the high ground to make access to the main house easier. DMA hopes to come back soon to take more photos.
On the Drawing Board

DMA is working on a 1,200 sf cottage on an extremely tight building envelope. The existing cottage was deemed appropriate to remove by the Phippsburg Historic District because of the condition, but it created a grandfathered buildable area the we used to build up, and not out, in a clever approach to the design.
