Yankee Ingenuity: A New England Home

An alternative-energy home in Maine showcases a New Englander’s sense of beauty and self-reliance.

Maine stonework and firewood from the Grassis’ property give local, country flavor to the modern, energy-efficient kitchen. The countertops are stone, chosen because they’ll last longer than synthetics and can be reused in another home someday.
