24'x40' Casco Bay Barn House

We designed and built this 2,000s.f. timber frame house for a discerning client on Chebeague Island here in Maine, 2014/2015. Our innovative structural design accommodates a no-compromise approach to the well-articulated living spaces.  The timber frame is a high-posted cape with ridge pole, fashioned from native Hemlock timbers, sanded and oiled.  The unique slip-joint cross-ties tame the cathedral ceiling on the second floor and create an attic storage loft above.  As often happens with a client who knows what she wants, this Bungalow took on a life of it's own.  We hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed creating this very special BungalowInABox.

UPDATE: We returned to complete the wrap-around exterior porch in the spring of 2015. And this house is now completed. View photos of the finished home and/or reserve the house for seasonal rental at the site below:
