A large steel valley beam in the great room was recently installed which allowed the roof to follow just in time for the snow. Rough framing of Clifden is nearly complete and is taking shape, and we are very much looking forward to the windows being installed. Final interior selections are being made with Jeanne Handy Interior Designs. Construction by Oceanside Builders.

Cliff Cottage
Plumbing and electrical are being roughed-in at Cliff Cottage. The screen porch link completes the framing exterior framing and really complements the architecture of this cottage. The interior spaces are nicely bright and airy. Construction by Chartier Building and Remodeling.
On the Drawing Board
A Craftsman inspired design with wonderful western views of Pemaquid Harbor is taking shape. We are moving forward with engineering and an energy analysis to confirm our 12" thick walls will give the client results they are looking for.
Team Championship!
It's time to brag a little with some good news during this pandemic. David's brother, Tim, recently won the Maine State Candlepin Team Championship, and his 669 total was the highest of the tournament. He now has a total of 18 state championships. Not to be outdone (insert family feud here), his sister Karen, who has retired from bowling, has 20 state titles and four state championships. Karen and Tim have each been named Pro-bowler of the Year three times. Also, Karen and her mom, Betty, won a State Open Doubles championship together. David has won zero State Championships in Candlepin Bowling.
Centre Street Arts Gallery
After experimenting with oil paints and Chinese ink painting, Sharon Bouchard discovered watercolors and became fascinated by their fluidity and evolution as they mix together on paper and help to create themes including landscapes, people, animals and cityscapes. You can find her work at Centre Street Arts Gallery, 11 Centre Street in Bath.
