This is a new house for a couple from Alaska completed in Fall 2017. The property is expansive farm lands with the dominant view facing south.  The owners are looking for a house that maximizes their enjoyment of this farm landscape in all seasons.  After considerable study, we organized the house in a broken 'U' shape to allow for a protected pedestrian and vehicular entry, the major living spaces organized linearly along the south, and an east facing kitchen and dining area for enjoyment of the early morning sun. The house has two master suites, one located on its own on the second floor, with the other remote from it on the first level.  This will provide optimal flexibility for the owners and any guests (temporary or permanent) they may have in the future.  With the exception of the second level master suite, all the living spaces are on the ground level. The owner is a skilled Maine contractor (Rich Construction) who built this new house with his wife and crew.

This project was included in the December 2018 Architecture issue of Maine Home + Design magazine.
