  1. I love this home. It is so me in every way. I am thinking if I win maybe doing a health retreat to afford paying for the taxes and insurance. Any Ideas?

    Donna on September 15, 2012 at 9:29 pm
    • Donna, that is a very nice thought, if your health retreat guests do not require certain accessibility features. These ADA features were vigorously requested by the Blog Regulars from the start. So much so, in fact, that the Design/Builder, Knickerbocker actually red-lined ADA changed to their blueprints! Sadly, however, in the end, and we don't know whose decision it was (aside for the removal of one accessible 1/2 bath/powder room downstairs), that made those regrettable decisions. There is a sense of healing, relaxation and restoration in Maine. Your guests would need to be able bodied to climb stairs, or you may need to expand the facilities, which would be lovely. I did so to become a caregiver in VA. There is only one bedroom and bath on floor one. I didn't see a good area to install an elevator there, should your guests need one. I now consult in this area so I jumped in uninvited, so forgive me, Donna . Lots to think about with your valid idea! Good luck to you!:) Kitty

    • Kitty, I so appreciate your comment. Thank you.

      I was pretty sure people would have to be able to do stairs. Though I had not planned on the care giver idea it would definitely have some possibilities if there were more access. I was thinking basically a bed and breakfast type retreat with classes on growing your own foods (sprouts, grasses, herbs, etc) and learning to eat and prepare meals of the raw vegan variety. As well as classes in herbology, edible plants, lymphology, reiki, meditation, self hypnosis, yoga, etc My heart yearns to see mirrors along one wall of the barn for a studio

      Donna on September 15, 2012 at 11:58 pm
    • I had thought of something along those lines months earlier. The parcel behind the barn, up to Peter's Pond, was donated to a land conservancy, but the Blog Cabin owner will have free access to the land anyway..( There is a buffer of land surrounding the barn that was not donated). Being able to take guests through those woods and explore the woodlands would be a living lab in herbology and edible plants. Hoping there is a way to grow mushrooms–in the woods, or somewhere in that huge barn.
      Lots of room to plant edible gardens and the kitchen is ideal to teach food prep classes. Imagine group yoga on that back deck with the meadow view………
      If that could raise enough funds to pay annual property tax, it could be a worthwhile idea. Good luck! !

      LLColeman on September 16, 2012 at 2:06 am
    • Remember there is a basement as well for growing mushrooms etc…

      Donna on September 17, 2012 at 8:17 am
    • Donna, many people take walking for granted; as I have found out over the past year. I did when I was younger & had no problem with steps, stairs, walking thru stores doing my shopping………then….BAM !!! I was hit with severe back problems !! Surgery, injections, meds, …..no cure or relief !! You should see me just navigating the 4 steps up my front porch=one hand on rail pulling myself up, one hand holding my purse, one hand holding my cane, one hand holding my shopping bags, oops ! I ran out of hands !!! Really, when they build these homes, consideration should be made for ALL people.

      gremol on September 16, 2012 at 5:01 pm
    • gremol, you have had the toughest time of it this year ! You know many of us continue to keep you in our prayers. I do not understand why universal access is not part of any design, if space permits. I think you were also blogging with us last year, and the 2011 BC had limitations because the home was raised out of the flood plain. That required much of the mechanical/ utilities to be housed in an area on the 1st floor, where I had hoped they could configure a den and full bath for either guests or someone who could not do stairs….and it still remained inaccessible to front or back doors for people with physical challenges.
      This year there is no excuse–the floor plans show the master suite takes up slightly most of the first floor…and of course before they framed in spaces, I was begging them to keep the master area ADA compliant. I was so disappointed and disheartened. Smart planning with that square footage could have made a great master area. The dining, living and kitchen areas were at least open, if not ADA reflective.

      LLColeman on September 17, 2012 at 4:44 am
    • I totally agree. I have had arthritis in my knees since I was 23 so it feels like it has been hard to do stairs forever but it is not nearly as bad as it is for my parents. I would sleep in the barn if it meant I could let my mom and dad live in that master bath if they wanted to. (as long as I get to use that tub sometimes)

      Donna on September 17, 2012 at 8:25 am
    • There is a fellow two houses away who has goats and is making goat cheese, so maybe you could incorporate that in healthy eating. There is also a seasonal resident next to me who is a yoga instructor in NY.

      Camac on September 16, 2012 at 10:10 pm
    • Between the goats and alpacas, I'd be in hoof heaven, LOL. I am sure the area does attract people with dreams of enterprise and creativity. <3

      LLColeman on September 17, 2012 at 4:47 am
    • That would be fun to watch it being done as a tour and come back and prepare into a delicious luncheon. My children were raised with fresh goats milk due to lactose intolerance which is part of what got me on my health kick to begin with. There is no animal milk I have found better than fresh goats milk put instantly into a bucket of ice to take out the gammy taste some have. I might have a hard time waiting to have any made into cheese.Shucks, Now you got my taste buds going.

      Donna on September 17, 2012 at 8:43 am
    • There was a goat cheese making kit included in the cabin comforts. I wonder iif they actually have it there?

      Anniesown on September 18, 2012 at 8:18 am
    • I've been intending to blog about the bathrooms; I don't want to sound mean or anything, but !!……….."whoever" had the say of final design in this Blog Cabin did not have their thinking cap on !! Yes, the Master Bed/Bath is on the 1st floor, good thing, but that's about where the ADA features stop. I just can't imagine not having a powder room on the 1st floor. If you have dinner guests, you have to tell them to go thru the Master Bedroom or up the stairs to use the facilities !! You already have the Media Room, Home Office, Guest Bedroom, & Kids Bedroom sharing the upstairs very small bathroom !! Stand in line everyone !!! I know I'll probably get some flack from this, but, WHAT were they thinking ??? This home should have been 3 & 1/2 baths; Master Bath & 1/2 Bath on 1st floor; Bath & Guest Bath on 2nd floor. There seems to have been too much attention spent on Media/Game/Office spaces; "I can offer you a 62" t.v., but not a place to pee" !!! Let the wet noodle beatings begin !! This B.C. does not live up to past ones.

      gremol on September 16, 2012 at 1:57 pm
    • Regarding the boondoggle of the bathroom issue–Gremol, you are spot on!!! NO WET NOODLE for you! Please pass the spaghetti!

      P.S. I have a sneaky suspicion that they did away with the roll in shower ADA provision in the master BA, once they built that humongous soak tub surround. It WAS there, red-lined by Knickerbocker, but removed by DIY , I think. But maybe I am mistaken–my perspective may be off, I just haven't seen the approach space to the shower in any video yet and the tub and shower handles are high up and possibly inaccessible in type and reach. :| :S Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on September 16, 2012 at 2:25 pm
    • Kitty, if you look at the photos, not the 360 view, of the M.Bath you can see the space much more clearly. There's plenty of room to get into the shower. Also, the controls are large and only about 3 1/2 ft from the ground. I'm sure the shower is accessible and can be used easily by people with mobility problems, muscle weakness or arthritis issues and children.

      The tub is, obviously, a completely different thing. I would remove it in favor of a 'proper' tub that the winner can stretch out in, not a dunk tank.;) From the dimensions given by Kohler the sink is actually wider than the bath tub. Maybe the winner can stretch out for a soak in tthe sink.;)

      Clive on September 16, 2012 at 3:52 pm
    • Clive, I'd really like to see a 'walk-in' tub installed in one of the homes !!

      gremol on September 16, 2012 at 5:18 pm
    • That would be great. I would hope that if the winner needed this and was going to keep the house that DIY would oblige them. With the DH some years back the winner used a wheelchair and they offered to modify the house for him. He decided to sell but I thouught that was a fantastic gesture. Now that HGTV seems to call most of the shots on the BC maybe that kindness could apply to a winner if needed. Here's hoping. :)

      Clive on September 16, 2012 at 6:00 pm
    • I watched very carefully when Chris & Matt M were in the master area–they often stood side by side so I could guess about the width of the spaces. They walked side by side in the entry way, even with the bench and closets, then once in the bedroom, there did seem to be ample space. They stood 2 abreast in the master bath doorway….but then the bathroom space narrows, between the mantel/bench structure and the huge sink surround. the shower is just what we have been asking for ,( not just on the BC blogs and also the 3 HGTV giveaway homes). Then someone REALLY dropped the ball–not just the big , wide tub but the huge marble top surround, which chokes off entry to the shower…I saw Chris stand in the entry to the shower and i cannot see a chair fitting in there. http://www.diynetwork.com/diy-blog-cabin-episodes
      Check out bath crash episode.

      LLColeman on September 17, 2012 at 4:58 am
    • Now THAT is where I am stuck! I don't believe that a wheelchair can roll into the shower, even though I know that some of you believe so. A wheelchair needs 5 ft. space turn-around and, for the life of me, I don't see it in the pictures. Plus, I envision a sharp turn for the wheelchair, from between the tub surround and sink corners into the shower opening and I think this may be awkward in either direction. I agree with Clive that a different tub will be needed, but, oh my! This property will require quite some expense for the winner, even before any ADA requirements are put in, if at all! As Camac has shared with us–and she lives just a few pieces of property down the same street–Waldoboro has very high property taxes to cover services and schools, because so many properties have been placed under Land Trust Management in order to lawfully SAVE on taxes, that the situation, sadly, is turning around and hurting the very citizens that the Trust intends to help. Municipalities will have to find monies somewhere to run City services…. Well–I really got off on a tangent, didn't I? But it is all about money! =/:o<3 Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on September 17, 2012 at 2:14 pm
    • Greetings Kitty and Fellow Bloggers! Have been looking at the photos and thinking of the shower situation.. Thought this might work — Person with "some" mobility= walkers that turn around and fold down into chairs.. Grandma had one and it seemed small enough to maneuver in the shower, safety bars located in/around to help adjust and sit on walker in shower as well as getting into the tub. Person with complete immobility= would probably be better off contacting local health services for pulleys and such.. Iif that were the case readjusting items in bathroom would probably need to happen — i.e. smaller tub. Interesting to hear about the Land Trust donation and how it does take away from the community.. This happened in my hometown. The college got lots of "breaks" from city, state, federal and due to that they are considered one of the poorest communities in the state even thought there is a multi million dollar University there!

      Lilly on September 17, 2012 at 2:38 pm
    • I'd go further with the number of bathrooms. Our house is about the same size as the BC (if their 3000ft + sq ft is to be believed??) and we have 5 full baths and 3 beds. We live on a lake and need every bathroom in the summer with people in and out of the water all day.

      Clive on September 16, 2012 at 4:16 pm
    • So right you are !!! Listen up DIY & HGTV………..the people are speaking !!

      gremol on September 16, 2012 at 5:03 pm
    • I think that putting in that 1/2 bath on the first floor would definitely be a priority.

      Donna on September 17, 2012 at 8:29 am
    • AMEN!

      Donna on September 17, 2012 at 8:44 am
    • That's exactly what I would do too – I've rented homes in the mountains to host retreats… it's amazing experience for people and I think this house would lend very well for that! Would think that you could turn office into a bedroom and you'd have 3 upstairs, plus the loft you could put in a blow-up bed. Grow you're own veggies and take hikes (I'd add a Labyrinth in the backyard as well) . I would want to put in a fitness area to do yoga, meditation, other fitness classes and spa services… in a separate building. I'd like to turn the barn into a display area for local artists/farmers market in the summer – maybe grow grapes and make wine onsite. Endless ideas! I'm sure there are lots of great ways to make the home work for you : )) Good luck everyone!!!!!!

      joliekc on September 16, 2012 at 6:04 pm
    • looks like they already have a farmers market fairly well established in the area. Not sure I would make wine since I don't know much about it. But I can put up jars of jellies and preserves like none other. And making my special varieties of herbal teas would be awesome. I could also do photography workshops. This place really leads with an artistic spirit….I feel so inspired.

      Donna on September 17, 2012 at 8:35 am
    • Sweet! Bring the jam/jelly and I'll figure out how to make the wine : ))

      joliekc on September 17, 2012 at 12:16 pm
    • That's the spirit! ^_^<3<3 Kitty

      p.s.And my money tree is up there already…;)

      DwnSoDwnEaster on September 17, 2012 at 2:21 pm
    • Sending lots of great mojo that trees way

      Donna on September 17, 2012 at 11:00 pm
    • But, did those renters have to stand in line to use the bathroom ??? Another upstairs bathroom would take priority over another bedroom in my mind !!! There are plenty of sleep spaces upstairs, just not enough shower, bath, 'do-your-business' spaces !!

      gremol on September 17, 2012 at 9:48 am
    • Yes, and they didn't care. We had one bathroom in the home we rented for 7 adults. It really wasn't an issue. We had so much stuff to do, hiking, laughter yoga, Qi Gong, Thai Massage, yoga, creative writting/drawing. The feedback was great. There's plumbing in the laundry area, I'm sure you could create a 1/2 bath downstairs without too much of an issue. ^_^

      joliekc on September 17, 2012 at 12:20 pm
    • I'll bet they weren't teenage girls !!!! They ALWAYS NEED the bathroom !!!!

      gremol on September 17, 2012 at 5:54 pm
    • All great idea's! Kitty, Loved the new pictures of the Money Tree. Seems things are growing in Waldoboro although when I was in Millinocket this weekend things are slow'in down. Getting cool nights – 32 degrees last night! Good luck fellow bloggers!

  2. I would love to see the BC up close like some of you can hopefully soon I will? :o

    pixelecho69 on September 16, 2012 at 12:52 am

    bogeyandbacall on September 16, 2012 at 4:08 pm
  6. This house is a complete work of art! I love everything about it, no powder room is groovy with me!!! The designers, craftsman, artist's, "THE TEAM" did a spectacular job! Kudos to the entire gang!!!

    These contests are killing me, but I'm keeping my "eye on God" and saying my novena's. I love this house and praying God hear's me. I'm supposed to meet him at a rock, I hope this Cabin is what he's talking about!:*

    Anne on September 16, 2012 at 4:51 pm
  7. This is a nice home, but I feel very 'let down' by DIY Blog Cabin !! Why you ask ??? Go up to Donna's first post on this page (2) & see replies. I totally think they dropped the ball on this one when they eliminated or did not include enough bath/powder rooms in BC. They went over the top with Media/Game/Office spaces & then only put that pitiful small bathroom in to accomodate the whole 2nd floor ?? Good sense did not prevail !!

    gremol on September 16, 2012 at 5:16 pm
  8. love it, love it……I am not even bothered by how close to the road it is because the road does not look like it is very busy. Still dreaming……

    Rosemary Martz on September 16, 2012 at 7:13 pm
  9. Well I went by the BC today to take a look at the driveway Camac was telling us about. There was a few cars there when we got there, so we drove by to turn around and came back, one was gone. The other one was leaving. Was that anyone from the blog?
    Well the driveway there, it's a cute little one, one car it looks like, not very long, but a good place to park and drop off the kids & shopping bags. No walk way to the house, will have to walk around the trees and things to front of house.
    Good news they fixed the eaves and painted them the same color as the trim and looks so much better. I took my daughter with me this time and she called it dumpy with all the rocks and things in the front yard, but what do kids know. With things dying off, I guess it could look dumpy to them. Out of the mouth of babes as they say.
    I didn't see any signs, so I went out back to look, the table and chairs are back out there and windows was clear so I could look in. I checked out the kitchen, looked nice what I could see of it, but smaller than I thought it would be. Table wouldn't look bad, if you painted the legs & sides white. JMO
    I didn't have much time my husband gave me 5 mins, so I had to hurry. I took a few pictures of new driveway as soon as I can, I'll get them up on my site so you all can see it too. I took some pictures of the new fall flowers there also. Since I went now to see the driveway, I don't know if I'll get back there for some fall shots/pictures, but we'll see.
    I can say they made a few changes to the place since the last time I was there. I'll let you know when new pictures are up.

    home_girl on September 16, 2012 at 8:48 pm
  10. O.K. everyone, I put up some new pictures on my web site of the new driveway and flowers if you want to take a look. They start right after the picture of Kitty lobster. http://www.yourespecialtoo.com/HouseInWaldoboroME
    If that link don't work look here….
    yourespecialtoo.com (look at the bottom for Waldoboro house, for those that don't know yet).

    There are about 14 new pictures there, so enjoy them. Pictures will blow up, if you click on them.
    I'll have to see about getting over there again to get some fall ones. I talked my husband into taking me over today as part of my birthday gift, (what with gas over $4.00 now).

    home_girl on September 16, 2012 at 11:01 pm
    • HomeGirl Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph and post the additional photos. Happy BeeLated Birthday! :P One Lucky Doggie will be enjoying EVERYTHING about the yard! It seems as if there is potential for a garage depending on city regulations. The plants and trees DO seem stressed. :( The Winner probably would not want to move anything until next year – - Guidance and/or help with regard to the plants potential for flourishing may be necessary. Just the 'idea' of being surrounded by all those wonderful plants and trees while reading the mail on the porch is calming ~ As long as there is a Better Homes and Gardens Magazine and not a whole lot of bills! :) hee hee! Good thing the hot tub will be fairly inexpensive to run & heat! Just one question.. About what time of day was it when you took the photos? The sun on the porch is quite nice! Have a good night! Thanks again for your time and efforts :) Truly Lilly

      Lilly on September 17, 2012 at 1:28 am
    • Thank Lilly I had a nice birthday with my family.
      Your all welcome and I am glad you are enjoying the pictures. I am glad they came out a lot better this time, I grab my other camera hoping they would. It's just that the sun was very bright again there, as you can see in the pictures.
      It had to be around 2-3pm when I was there, for it was right after a poultry meeting in Washington and we went by the house on the way to my mothers. So you can see it gets lots of sun light when the sun is shining and it's not raining.
      Yes I love all those wonderful shade trees they have around house and barn. I would love to sit under the one by mailbox and just read away.

      home_girl on September 17, 2012 at 9:37 am
    • Hi Home_girl….Happy belated Birthday Rhonda, I hope your family made your Birthday Special for you..Thank you so much for taking those great photos!!! I have a question that keeps bothering me and don't know if anyone else noticed it….At the front door and kitchen corner there is maybe 2 feet of roof and of course no gutter and I'm thinking when it storms, the water will be coming down at that corner and is directed toward the Corbel roof but with No gutter, the waterfall will come down in the corner. I'm thinking there will be a flood problem at the front door area..Maybe I'm wrong! Just My Thoughts! What are your thoughts??

      Jennie/Florida on September 17, 2012 at 11:38 am
    • Hi Rhonda, I would be one Happy Camper if they did all those things you mentioned and one more thing, don't forget the "potty" on the first floor!! This Home really needs those upgrades and so does the New Homeowner!!!
      The only thing about the rain coming off the roof to the Corbel…I don't think the rain would reach the Corbel, it just pours from the roof to the terrace I'm thinking…

      Jennie/Florida on September 17, 2012 at 1:47 pm
    • Jennie, all the pictures I look at of the front door area, looks like the water would run off the roof right onto the top of the corbel roof. If it was just a light rain it might just drip on the side of it. Blow up the picture after the lobster one on my site, and you can see pretty much the line of the roof & door, what do you think?

      home_girl on September 17, 2012 at 3:29 pm
    • Jennie/Florida, The washer and dryer could be "stacked" giving you more space for a toilet. The plumbing could easily be installed giving you a first floor laundry/powder room. Hope this is helpful.

      bythebaydreamer on September 17, 2012 at 5:53 pm
    • Thank you, bythebaydreamer anything is better than nothing…I can't believe they eliminated the powder room they had on the first floor…the big laundry room can be divided…All is needed for the laundry room is a sink, ironing board and space for folding clothes, so stacking the W/D would give space for the P/R and should be an easy fix with the plumbing already there..It's up to the New Owner now to decide whether they want or need the P/R…As I have said before, it's ashame the house is valued at 700k and only has 2 bathrooms!!!

      Jennie/Florida on September 17, 2012 at 10:40 pm
    • Thank you home_girl, those were great. The one thing have noticed about Josh's way of landscaping is he plants things so close to the house. That wouldn't work here there is a law that you can't plant anything closer then 3feet to your house. But he does some great things.

      vicki_in_Utah on September 17, 2012 at 8:53 am
    • Thanks so much for the pics. Is that a crawl space under the floor in that open spot in the back of the barn?

      Donna on September 17, 2012 at 9:00 am
    • Thanks for posting the photos. It's a lovely home….a lot of work went into transforming it!

      NYCMaine on September 17, 2012 at 9:08 am
    • You must have enjoyed yourselves with the money tree! That must have been great fun. The pictures are great and thanks for thinking of all of us that can't get there!

      karen on September 17, 2012 at 10:43 am
    • The Money tree was Kitty's Idea, she wanted to share it with her blogger buddies.

      I try to keep the blogger that can't make it to Maine up dated with pictures of the new wonder of what happen with the BC, when I can.

      home_girl on September 17, 2012 at 10:52 am
    • Thank you, Karen! I had joked about just going out to the money tree when we were all blogging about the rising expenses we'd incur, re-adding the powder room, renovating, painting re-roofing and strengthening the barn structure, replacing the stairs to the cellar–which were removed and not returned and, of course, paying all the taxes on the ARV. It just seemed natural to go get it off the tree, since that's what hubby and I say all the time. Well, the Bloggies took note of my little insertion and things took off. THEY were going to borrow some, which I thought was great, if they would only water and fertilize, to ensure continued production. Then we planned the planting, while my Hubby and I make our annual trip "home" to Maine. We were elated to see how our tree hybridized and you saw all the denominations it produced, up to a 1MM Dollar bill! If only it weren't a dream, the BC Winner would have everything bought and paid for because of that money tree, which still grows on the land… sigh!^_^xD;)<3 Kitty

      DwnSoDwnEaster on September 23, 2012 at 3:31 pm
    • Thanks for thegreat pictures and updates, you are super.

      Flashy on September 17, 2012 at 12:47 pm
    • Happy Birthday!!! Tell your husband he gave you a "gift" that you shared with all your fellow bloggers! I love the pictures. Thank you!

      bythebaydreamer on September 17, 2012 at 5:46 pm
    • thanks, I told him and he's glad others got to enjoy it too.

      home_girl on September 17, 2012 at 7:23 pm
    • Thank you. Those picture perfect pics are wonderful and we enjoy looking at each and every one of them with delight. Hope you do not mind I am using your barn pic with the wildflowers as my desktop image? Thank you for taking the time to make that such a great blog.

      Hawkweed on September 19, 2012 at 11:46 am
    • Hawkweed
      I don't mind at all, but thanks goes to Ken Day for that picture. I am sure he would be happy you liked it that much to want to put it on your desk top.
      I was so happy when He shared his with us. Thanks again Ken.

      home_girl on September 19, 2012 at 12:46 pm
    • Home _girl, you did it again? Great pictures!…. :) Thank you !!!! Thank You, Thank You! And Thanks to your hubby too :)
      Nice to see they put a driveway in. Sqeeky wheel gets the grease doesn't it. :)
      It doesn't apear that the barn is very far away from the house either from the looks of it.Extra parking is always a good thing. :) What a treat to see actual pictures of the BC once again. I have to agree with you, love the picture of the bird on the roof!! What a blessing that was! A treat for us and a treat for you :) Thanks Again, Windee :)

    • Hi Carolyne! Home_Girl, mostly, and Day Dreamer are responsible for the photos of the house and barn. My hubby, Gary, took some pix of the rear barn during summer, but he and I worked on the Money Tree, with the help of Camac, Jennie/FL, Lilly and of course, Home_Girl posted them on her website! Glad you liked it! In our dreams, that Money Tree will take care of all needed taxes and expenses for the winner of BC–I hope only that the winner is a Bloggie!!! ;) :p^_^ Kitty
