Welcome to our home...

We like the concept of naming a home. It began when we moved into Dallas in 1992 from the "Metroplex" suburbs, and bought a 1930's era "stone embellished" Tutor bungalow which we named "Tres Tulipanes" due to the "three tulip" pattern in the leaded glass windows.

When we moved to Maine in 1997 and bought an otherwise nondescript "cape" ten mile outside of Portland, we did not consider a name for it, but as we came to know the land and the way the sun cast long and evocative shadows across the green grass or the white snow, we knew we had the perfect name for our new home.

Come and see how these past ten years have come and gone at "Longshadows" in these following "before and after" pages.
