Val and I met at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor in 1994. After I graduated, we decided to make this area our home. Spring 2014, we welcomed Guy into our family.
We have worked in the Bar Harbor area on lobster boats, in restaurants, as a carpenter, running a summer camp and teaching . We moved out to Lamoine in 2001 and built our house and guesthouse ourselves. They are both modern in design as we both have an interest in modern architecture.
We own Peacock Builders which builds really cool custom houses and Val is an education consultant. In the summer, we enjoy being outside as much as possible- either on our sailboat or hiking, biking or running. We travel when we can and first used Airbnb to stay in Paris. We love the idea of living like locals and enjoyed getting the inside scoop from our host. As hosts we have really enjoyed getting to meet people from around the country and around the world.
