This hillside home near Sunday River sprawls through layers of space. Its location on a steep hill called for a unique layout that would unify the home over those changing levels. A secondary aim, according to architect Caleb Johnson, was “simplicity of materials throughout,” which also created a cohesive look. With a focus on clean, minimalistic design, millwork of a single wood—white oak, is the focal point, each space with a unique stain to allow multiple tones to come through.
