small cottage

This is what the small cottage looked like before it was removed and a new cottage built.

After the project was completed Maine Cottage Furniture used the living room for a photo shoot.

Here are two comparison plans of the Rangeley, Maine lodge I produced renovation designs for.

Take a quick look at the living room before and after. The ‘before’ living room was way too small. You didn’t get that grand lodge feel. In my design, I removed the loft and slid it back over the existing sunroom and new addition, doubling the size of the living room and opening it up to the ridge. I really wanted to expose the original log walls and underside of roof. New insulation was added to the top of the roof.  Kitchen, mudroom, entry, bedrooms and bathrooms were all relocated, but the big brushstroke was moving the loft to create the grand lodge room. There is an AWESOME chandelier in the living room, that doesn’t show up in the attached photos and can’t wait to photograph.

My client just sent these two photos to me. I can’t imagine how awesome the place will look with professional photos! These images came out incredible from all the up-lighting reflected off the snow outside.. Still some misc. lighting to be installed. The cabin feels so much more “lodge-like” which is what I was after with my design. The owner has the best historical ephemera you can imagine. It’s like a historical museum inside.

Rendering from the past

Here are some renderings I did years ago. One is a rendering of Cony High School that I did back when I was working at PDT Architects. This rendering, which was published in a number of magazines and newspapers, caught the eye of a designer who hired me to render the other two images.
