A family decides to invest the annual vacation house rent to build a home of their own

New house

Orleans, MA

Miller Starbuck Construction

This old cabin on Maine’s rocky coast had been a family retreat for many years, but as the children grew and started their own families there was a pressing need to house multiple generations at once.  The project included extensive expansions on the main and second levels to add multiple bedrooms, a new kitchen, bathrooms, and a wrap-around deck and skylit screened porch. Loose piles of rocks that had supported the old house corners were replaced with more reliable concrete piers.  The multi-gabled roof line, brick-red painted siding with white trim, and a hand built fieldstone fireplace all reflected the classic elements of New England’s architectural heritage.
