Architectural Design Services & New Home Construction

No matter what style you have in mind for the home of your dreams, from traditional Maine homes, to Timber Frame, shingle style, American Craftsman, or a cozy coastal cottage, our designer will be able to assist you in visualizing and planning even the smallest details. We will make sure that your home is positioned to best make use of all that the natural world has to offer. From tiles that absorb sunlight and preserve it for chilly winter nights, to the perfect placement of windows for warmth and taking in the beauty of Coastal Maine, we take the Earth as well as the client's perspective, into consideration while building a new home.

Renovations & Additions

If you're not looking for an entirely new home, we also offer renovations and additions to make your home everything that you wish for it to be. We'll be happy to help you with plumbing, flooring, appliances, painting, or anything else that you may need for your home. We will do everything we can to work with you to improve and perfect your existing home.

Kitchens & Bathrooms

If you enjoy entertaining guests in your home, a customized kitchen space with everything that you may need or want is a must. Meanwhile, the bathroom is a place to relax and reset. With Breakwater, you can have the kitchen and bathroom that you desire. We will work with you to build a kitchen you will love spending time in with friends and family. We can customize your kitchen with you and help you make all of the decisions, from paint colors, backsplashes, and appliances to the littlest piece of hardware, so that your kitchen will reflect who you are as an individual.

Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators

With three models to choose from, Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators can make aging in place a reality. For children, adults, and those who wish to live independently without having a massive impact on the environment the way that some elevators do, PVEs are an excellent way to combine energy efficiency with the groundbreaking design of in-home elevators that save space while resting on the ground floor of your home.

Timber Frame Homes

With a Timber Frame, you will have a beautiful, timeless home. Your home will be customized, eco-friendly, and durable while also providing you and your loved ones with a long-lasting and exquisite home made from energy efficient materials such as super-insulated panels. You will also have the opportunity for larger and more open floor plans and extravagance. If that doesn't interest you, you could have an exposed-beam style cottage that highlights craftsmanship and attention to detail. We work directly with Woodhouse who provide us with Timber Frame Kits. If you're interested in more information regarding Timber Frame houses, or a tour of the Woodhouse factory, you can reach out to us via our Contact page, or to Woodhouse directly at https://timberframe1.com/contact-us/
