Mountain style two-story exterior home photo in Portland Maine


Rustic Exterior, Portland Maine

Featured on the cover of the Boston Globe Magazine, this “modern cottage” was designed to accommodate the client’s intimate lifestyle, with an open floor plan that allows light to flow through the rooms. Primary household functions were placed in opposite corners of the house to orchestrate a diagonal movement from one end of the house to the other, which in turn creates a sense of spaciousness within this modest structure.

    How did you detail the exterior chimney penetration? Is it a custom thing, or from the manufacturer?

    The siding is Cedar shingles that were pre-stained with Cabot Semi Transparent Stain in Seacoast Gray.

    The fireplace is a custom piece!
