Open House - The Ugly Duckling Has Become a Swan

The house is finally finished and we've put it on the market!!!

And that means it's time for an Open House!  Local friends, please join us on Sunday, June 18th from 11 am - 3 pm, at 11 Henry St, SoPo.  The 'Ugly Duckling' has gone through a major transformation and is now a lovely, coastal cottage - aka 'Swan'.  We would love for you to see it!

This 1906 home has been enlarged and transformed for today's lifestyle.  We've tried to keep many original features - including the first floor ceiling, funky roof lines and vintage charm.

But we've included all the amenities that people want today.  Open concept floor plan,

and a master suite that lets you get away from the hustle and bustle of the household.

And if you need closet space?  Well this closet has space galore.

And wait till it's cocktail time - this rooftop deck is the perfect way to relax after a long day.

Want to come see it, even though you're not in the market for a new home?  We'd love to have you stop by.  But would you please bring a donation to the South Portland Food Cupboard?  We had over 100 pounds of donated food at our last Open House - I'm hoping we can break that record this time and help even more neighbors in need!  Here's a link to the things they need the most.

For those of you that are not local, I hope to get more 'Before & After' photos published in the next couple of weeks.  Thanks so much to everyone that has followed along on the transformation of The Ugly Duckling!  It's been quite the journey!!!

  6. Wow that is an impressive build. I wish you were more local to give me some design consultation
