NH Architects Interviewed About Cottage Renovation

Country Almanac’s Small Room Decorating, a national magazine designed to help homeowners maximize the living space in their small home or cottage, loved the 400 square foot cottage renovation recently completed by Bonin Architects and Associates in New London, NH.

The cottage renovation project had two primary goals: creating an open, efficient space that looks and feels larger than it really is and reusing as much as the original building material as possible.

The result is an efficient use of space, with a new cathedral ceiling and sleeping loft created when the original ceiling was removed.  Apartment-sized appliances maximize space in the kitchen.

Creative storage space was addressed with shelves, cubbies, benches, and hooks.
