Retro kitchen on Cape Cod

“The decision to tear down and rebuild a home, especially a cottage in a unique setting like this, can be a difficult one for many homeowners. Often times there are strong emotional ties to a home with years of wonderful memories, and although a new home brings many benefits, homeowners sometimes lose that nostalgic sense of summers past on Cape Cod,” Teague reflects. 

“We jumped at the opportunity to work on this project, as it presented  a distinct challenge, namely how do we design and build a modern home with special features that retains the nostalgic feelings of the past. The finishes and fixtures, selected with the homeowner, really put our planning and design skills to the test. We really enjoyed working with a homeowner who had the vision and creativity to achieve their vision of a retro-styled cottage that has all of the functionality, energy performance and durability of modern materials and construction techniques.”

Teague reiterates the special nature of the project when he says, “We worked so well together, in fact, that we collectively decided this process might be best shared in a book,  which could appeal to people interested in designing and building a home, especially a retro-inspired cottage on Cape Cod.”
