How nice to see three Bouler Architecture residences side by side in this family compound. The houses form a family of their own, each with its own style and program, and yet they relate to one another with a familiar intimacy. The cedar shingle, thicker and more expressive than most, gives the buildings a hearty timelessness intended to withstand the waterfront conditions for many seasons to come. Two of the three houses are close to completion, with sheetrock in place and appliances installed, but the third, the more complex of the three, is now truly taking shape. With its dramatic foyer and airy floor plan, it's exciting to see this new member of the 'family' entering the conversation.
