The Old Fireplace

May 26, 2010

Prior to the "deconstruction" phase of our Eastport kitchen renovation we hammered out a plan for the new room with our client. Creating a brand new kitchen in an antique home requires special consideration. It has to function efficiently, respond to the needs and conveniences of contemporary living - yet somehow connect with kitchens past. In this case a past that spanned nearly 200 years.


A New Workshop (Part 2)

May 22, 2010

We have always been restoration purists at heart, so the first major decision in our workshop renovation, was a tough one - to reposition the original location of the exterior door from the center to the side (where a window had once been), to make the space more functional.


A New Workshop (Part I)

May 19, 2010

An expanding business made it time to attack a project long overdue - a properly fitted workshop. The space that workplace now occupies, began its life seventy-five years ago as a woodshed in the back end of the 1935 ‘ell’ (‘Maine-speak’ for addition) to our circa 1893 home.


Getting Started

May 10, 2010

My inaugural blog, coincides with the start of our new project, a kitchen renovation in an early nineteenth century cape in Eastport. Our goal is to bring the room back, in spirit and detailing to its earliest period.
