An Island Retreat

Maine Coast

We used a Sea Truk to transport a small barn frame - 24x36 - to an island off the Maine Coast. The barn cottage now serves as a staging area for water pursuits and provides basic "camp-style" living. Full second story floor, gable end windows overlooking the rocky coast. The Sea Truk does not require dockage and also transported a 22-ton crane for the raising in a remote setting without harming the fragile coastline. The barn is placed on a foundation of piers.

Upstairs will be an apartment with cathedral ceiling, a balcony overlooking the vehicle storage area, exposed king posts and oiled 8"x16" Douglas fir beams.
