Cedar Shingle Colonial Beach House

Shingle beach house. Every home comes with a story and there's plenty of stories to be said about this 1960s cedar shingle colonial beach house. The designer Linda Banks, from Linda Banks of Banks Design Associates and Simply Home, starts by explaining that this entire house was a rabbit warren of tiny rooms and her objective was to open it up to expose the views of Casco Bay and access the outdoor living areas. The homeowners, a young couple with two small children from New York City purchased an older beach house in Maine thinking of doing some minor repairs but a problem with frozen pipes during the winter lead to a major renovation, which served as a white canvas for the designer to create each space with more freedom.  Despite the first troubles this property had, the homeowners knew they were in good hands to make the best of this home and to finally take full advantage of the stunning views of the Maine's coastline.

Every home comes with a story and there’s plenty of stories to be said about this 1960’s cedar shingle colonial beach house. The designer Linda Banks, from Linda Banks of Banks Design Associates and Simply Home, starts by explaining that this entire house was a rabbit warren of tiny rooms and her objective was to open it up to expose the views of Casco Bay and access the outdoor living areas. The homeowners, a young couple with two small children from New York City, purchased an older beach house in Maine thinking of doing some minor repairs but a problem with frozen pipes during the winter lead to a major renovation, which served as a white canvas for the designer to create each space with more freedom.
