Private Residence, Hartford Maine

Posted by on Sep 15, 2011

This Western Maine beauty is designed with the sun in mind! The goal of the owners of this home was to create a home that would be easy to live in for the long term and very energy efficient. It’s passive solar design will keep the main living areas of the house very comfortable through the long Maine winter months. This home is a hybrid timber home – meaning it has conventionally framed walls with a exposed heavy timber rafter roof system. The exterior walls consist of conventional 2×6 stud framing with 1” of rigid foam on the exterior and dense-pack cellulose within the 2×6 cavity. The exterior siding is native eastern white pine clapboards. This 2400 square foot home boasts a first floor master suite, 2 extra bedrooms, loft, huge kitchen and great room. This home also has a two-car garage with walk up storage, screened-in porch, a walkout basement with limitless potential, a dumbwaiter that services all three floors, and ample storage spaces.
