Interior finishes include sustainable bamboo flooring and recycled glass, tile, and quartz counter tops. Natural stone is another sustainable, natural material introduced into the design. Peri Olson, owner of Cabbages & Kings Interiors based in Sandwich, worked closely with the couple on every aspect of the interior design, including the fieldstone fireplace. A large Indian quartz sandstone lintel above the firebox resembles a piece of petrified wood, adding drama and interest to the design.

Eric Roth “It was challenging to build such a small house, every  half inch counted,” says Miller. “The floor plan had to be tight.” To optimize space, Miller designed a built-in bookcase and settee in the living space and built in closets, dressers, nightstands and the bed in the master bedroom. All the fixed furnishings give the house a true nautical feel. A sliding door inset with recycled colored glass becomes a space saver between the master bath and bedroom because the door does not swing into the space. The master bedroom’s ceiling is finished in tongue-and-groove cedar boards to further the ship-like effect. Miller also included interior transoms to allow more light into the small spaces.
