Maine Land

 

When a young Max Caulkins was spending his summers in Maine’s West Penobscot Bay, he never imagined his own family would one day follow in those same east coast footsteps. But when two decades later a Colonial revival on the very street where he lived and played came on the market, Max (now grown with a family of his own and living in Denver) and his wife Ramey jumped at the opportunity.  Eager to create a space where their young family could make a lifetime of their own vacation memories, Ramey (an interior designer by trade) and Max embarked on a renovation that included “winterizing” the turn of the century abode. An innovative approach in an area where most, if not all of the homes are used solely as summer cottages. Following this edict, the couple added a two-story addition that makes for a perfect escape in all four seasons – including the chilly Maine winters – while still maintaining the historic 1902 home’s structural integrity. In fact, the remainder of the seven-bedroom, five-bathroom space stayed architecturally in tact.
