Granite Pier Rebuild
This new home sits on the foundation and part of the original first floor of a house originally built in the midst of the once thriving Rockport granite industry. The home is focused on views of Sandy Bay and is laid out to serve as a multi generational vacation home and eventually as the family’s retirement home. Treehouse provided architectural and interior design services, acted as general contractor, and built all the custom millwork and cabinetry. Granite used for the new wall at the street, the chimney, front piers, and the fireplace mantle and hearth were all salvaged or found on site. A geothermal heating and cooling system is employed to ensure low operating costs into the future.
