I offer my design talent and years of construction experience building on the Maine coast. I have worked with many of the best builders in the state of Maine and would be pleased to make recommendations for your project even if you do not use my architectural services.

Construction layout started at the site 8/18/2008 with completion 11/12/2009.
Construction completed under budget and ahead of schedule in 14 months.
The solar thermal provides domestic hot water and supplemental space heat. The collector array on the south roof consists of 160 Apricus evacuated tubes. The array is mounted at 60 degrees to horizontal to optimize performance for space heating. Two 160 gallon Stiebel Eltron dual coil tanks are used to store the thermal energy for domestic hot water and for space heat.
Solar Systems used in the Freeport House for solar electric photo below and heating photo above.
There is a 5.4 kW Photovoltaic array on the southwest roof of the house consisting of (24) 225 watt Sunpower modules. The modules feed power into a Sunpower 5000 watt inverter. The inverter will feed roughly 6200 kilo-watt hours of electricity per year into the house and/or the power grid.
