At Gordon James, we make sure each custom home we build meets our high standards of quality. Our Orono Artisan is no exception.

Coastal Feel

A casual, ocean-like feel that is modern, chic, and elegant. This beautiful exterior would feel right at home in an east-coast resort town.

Reclaimed Barn Wood

Repurposing has recently become a popular pastime. Reclaiming wood and building materials gives an antique and weathered feel that also maintains a sturdy balance and pleasing aesthetic. Using this type of wood can provide a homely feel as well as an instantly aged or historic appearance while maintaining an overall modern design and purpose.

Adding to the natural and traditional look of the home, bluestone is essential for providing character.

Glass Mosaic

Often used as creative, eye-catching interior design, as is the case here, there are also multiple, non-aesthetic uses for glass mosaic. For example, mosaic can be a sturdy. clean surface. Glass mosaic also complements other designs, both visually and in a structured environment. It can provide a comfortable and cozy look that makes visitors feel warm and the house inviting. The pattern is generally very smooth and non-obtrusive. Also, there’s a wonderful juxtaposition between the pieces of the glass mosaic and reclaimed barn wood.

Cambria Quartz Surfaces

This quartz-surfacing product has a marble-like quality but has some different uses. For example, it has very strong durability so that the material can last longer, as it is one of the hardest and most common minerals on earth.  It is a pure material with a natural look that not only provides that durability but also provides a hip look while being maintenance-free and nonporous.The kitchen area with quartz counter tops in a custom artisan home from Gordon James
