Using Local Materials for your Cottage, Camp or Bungalow
By Breakwater Design & Build, Inc | Mar 16, 2013
Cottages, camps, and bungalows are convenient places to use natural materials. Wood shakes go well on the exterior walls and interior walls painted white with shiplap boards give a great cottage feel. Then there are the interior floors and outdoor walkways. Any one of these areas would look good with flagstone, bluestone, brick, or clay pavers to bring the natural feel of the outside in to your cottage. The best course of action is to search local markets for available materials and don't rule out the possibility of using salvaged materials. Maine has a great source of many local materials to use in your cottage we have samples of Maine products in our office. Call and make an appointment to see your choices.
