“Our cottage was constructed (on stilts!) in 1990 by a local builder who lives on a nearby island year-round—even when the bay freezes over. We designed it to have as few walls as possible to take advantage of the 360-degree views of the bay. The wicker chairs are from Pier 1 and the table was custom-built for us as a Christmas present from my grandparents.”
