There have been many ideaboks written on home on the coast of Maine, this is my favorite. Oh, and, can I come and visit? Please?

Like Mary asked, what is your architect thinking of? With lots of waterfront homes here in Annapolis, solutions are abundant. He/she ought to be able to come up with something creative.

There is no need for a full wall of glass. Defined, traditional windows frame a view. You could also consider 1 or more large picture windows.

I agree, smaller set of windows could be as dramatic as full of the glass which are not as energy efficient with the colder winters in Maine.
