A talented designer “sets things straight”

“When assessing my clients’ needs, I often ask whether this is their forever house. Paula told me that she and Steve love the neighborhood, their kids love the neighborhood, but they had friends who couldn’t visit because their knees were bad, or other health issues prevented them from making it up the stairs.” 

“When Christine asked if we had ever thought about flipping the house, I had thought about it, but I couldn’t see how that would work,” Paula says.

It didn’t take much convincing, just a bit of envisioning how the dark, closed-off ground floor could become an open, airy expanse that would capture the charming view. Steve Cook from Cotuit Bay Design took the helm for that part of the project. And to execute the plan, David Liimatainen of Mashpee’s Eagle’s Nest Builders put it all together seamlessly.

“It was a fairly easy plan to implement,” Cook explains. “And  it made such a difference. The views are the star from everywhere in the house and the bonus is that the aging-in-place design will serve them for years to come.”
