North Kingstown, Rhode Island
Located on a peninsula, part of a modest compound constructed from reclaimed wood, this “Cigar Shack” was built for privacy and to enjoy established view corridors… while smoking a cigar, of course.
Shoreline tree removal was discouraged for privacy and proper preservation of the water’s edge. The compound, which includes the main house, surrounding gardens, a vegetable plot, a rock wall and a barn, simply blends in with the surrounding wooded vernacular.
Reclaimed wood was repurposed for this private retreat and imparts its own history, endurance and character. The weathered surface, variant tones and rustic textures highlights the architectural design of the shack both inside and out.
