Eagle House was our first project in Cape Elizabeth. The house was designed by Ed Detmer, the architect/owner of Jill's Clam Shack. The contemporary forms partnered with traditional exterior materials compliment the oceanfront setting and do not overwhelm the landscape. The house is comfortable year round and easy to heat because of the in-slab radiant heat system, solar hot water collectors, and flash and pack insulation (closed-cell spray foam and dense pack cellulose) in the walls and roof. Interior air quality is maintained with an ERV (energy recovery ventilator).
The interior finishes are simple. The polished concrete floor on the first level is durable and optimal for the operation of radiant heating. The remaining floors are pre-finished maple. The interior doors, tile fireplace surround, built-ins, exposed collar ties in the living room and tile in the bathrooms complete the house and give it character.
