American Classic - The Fisherman's Cottage

A favorite for the kick-back, beaching, catch-your-own-fresh-fish, summer crowd.  Here is the flip-side to the "new" resort look...a well-lived, historic home can have character without having the feeling of a worn-out rag.  Exposed rafters and roof boards left in their original state, open-grate cabinetry for ventilation of seaside breeze (crafted by cabinet-maker Carter Mitchell), and objects found for accessorizing.  A fresh coat of floor paint, a uniform theme of boating classic.
