Island off Connecticut coast
Light-hearted and picturesque, Island House distills the essence of its seaside summer community. The dramatic repetition of pointed dormers places paired windows on an angle better to capture the sweeping views to the water.
The first floor functions as a living room in the summer with French doors that open to the view. At the end of the season, the furniture is moved aside to make room for the pick-up truck. Lanterns suspended from the points of the roof are standard mooring balls fitted with light bulbs inside.

The main cabin and its outbuildings embody the simple life, with exposed studs and rafters. The outbuildings have no electricity or running water. Living in Snout House is a pure summer experience, close to nature. Simple but whimsical decorative elements add to the delight.
