In Like a Lion

April 5, 2018

We just returned back from a ‘spring’ trip to the Hamptons; staying in a circa, 1810 Federal in our old hometown of Sag Harbor. This home was the site of our very first kitchen and baths renovations, some 20 years ago. Our former clients have become longtime friends.

Summer Newsletter

Our latest kitchen and pantry project in the historic, circa 1850, Benjamin R. Jones home in Dennysville and detailed in the blog, 'Square Nails and Tells', now has its finishing touches. Our clients took a trip down to historic Little Compton, RI and the Antique Stove Hospital to pick up their freshly rehabilitated kitchen stove.

 

Leaving Well Enough Alone

August 15, 2017

With the kitchen restoration in our project home, a circa 1850, Dennysville cape, nearing completion, our focus turned to a bathroom on the first floor of the main house. The room, that likely once served as a small bedroom (sometimes called the "birthing room") was turned into a bathroom, in the late 1920s by members of the Leighton family.

Water's Edge

April 29, 2016

During this unusually mild winter we stayed busy with projects ranging from upgrades to a lobsterman's summer cottage on the Passamaquoddy Bay, a guest room renovation in a circa 1840s cape on Water Street in Eastport, to Phase 2 of window restoration in an antique home on the Dennys River.

Preservation Tales

November 21, 2015

Since our spring newsletter we've finished projects in an 1899 Queen Anne cottage and two 19th century Cape Cods. In May we were surprised to be contacted by a TV production company based in Knoxville Tennessee that works with HGTV and the Food Network. They were interested in developing a reality show following our various restoration and renovation projects.

The Springs

December 20, 2012

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Juliet's sentiment was entirely understandable and continues to be relevant. What did it matter whether you were a Montague or a Capulet - if you were in love?
