Year-Round Maine Home

A home and barn scaled to a Maine town's rural context

These two Geobarn structures, a home and a barn, illustrate perfectly how a successful residential project can achieve quality and value using the Geobarn frame.  Accepting and celebrating the timber structure, and the largely open plan it makes possible, these clients used clean white and wood surfaces to accentuate the clean lines.  Simple, quality detailing and natural materials in the kitchen and living areas fit with the industrial-timber look, and don’t require fussy moldings and elaborate trim to finish this loft-like space.

Dear George,

I don’t even know where to begin to thank you for building us such a beautiful barn. From the beautiful cupola to the enormous basement, it is beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Even though Frank and I are not the richest folks around we were able to work with you to build a dream home that no matter what the price fulfilled every aspect of what Frank and I are looking for in a house/barn.

From the moment I finally walked thru the door and saw how magnificent the rooms were and the openness and sunlight that shines throughout, we just felt so blessed. It was difficult knowing you were so far away building us this beautiful barn but once we drove up and saw this amazing building standing before us, I knew it was worth the wait.

The first time we met with you we felt that we had met someone who understood exactly what we were looking for and you never disappointed us. Not only was it an amazing business adventure but out of it came a wonderful friendship. We have had so many laughs over the past few months and everything has gone so smoothly that its hard to come to the realization that every night we don’t have to call “George” to see how his day went or to eat dinner really fast so we can run to our computer and see the latest photos from a hard days work.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for being so professional and for your friendship and unfortunately we’ll just have to keep in touch!!!!!!!!

With our love and deepest appreciation,

Janet and Frank
