When a rather plain cape cod house came on the market the buyers saw an opportunity to downsize and create a cottage home in the heart of a quaint New England hamlet. This thoughtful renovation and addition favors quality details over square footage and embodies the spirit of The Not So Big House. An open floor plan replaces the original warren of rooms and uses varying ceiling heights and finishes to define spaces. Cottage details abound with cased beams, painted wood paneling and custom built-ins throughout.
