From the industrial revolution

to sustainable affordable housing

How will we know

it's us-

without the past...?

What a community chooses to save

is what a community chooses to say about itself

"Quality affordable housing is a key element

for a strong and secure Maine”

- Angus King

We shape our buildings

thereafter they shape us

Commercial buildings should bring you inside

the vision of the business owner

Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality

-Abraham Lincoln.
