White Mountain View farmhouse-exterior

White Mountain View

An existing pasture high on a hill in Western Maine with dramatic views towards the Presidential Range.

We oriented a classic high pitch gable roof towards the grand western views, and opened the house towards the southern warmth with shed dormers. Deep overhangs on the lower roofs give shelter to the animals in winter and create a shady spot to watch the sunsets.

The house is clad in a mix of traditional clapboards and stained shingles, differentiating the habitable space from the storage areas.

The brown roof edge is a Dark Bronze, one of Everlast Roofing's standard colors chosen to align with Marvin's Dark Bronze windows. The shingle and clapboard red is Barn Red by Cabot stains.
