From the Publisher. Houses of Maine offers an in-depth look at six houses, from the celebrated House on Casco Bay (a modern update to a nineteenth-century Cape Cod) to Pond House (a Mount Desert Island summer cottage inspired by local fishing shacks). It's proof that in the right hands, the rough-around-the-edges individualism and often harsh natural environment for which this coast is known allow for a balanced, serene, and vernacular architecture whose links with the past create nothing less than a confidently optimistic preview of the region's architectural future.
