Sneak Peek: Nautical and Nice

Robert Hay and Kathleen Hay’s top-to-bottom renovation of a small Nantucket house puts the bottom on the top. The Hays converted the second-floor master bedroom intoÂ a kitchen so that the whole family could enjoy the adjoining deck space and surrounding views; the first floor now consists of two bedrooms that open onto the lawn. The whole house carries the feeling of being on a ship, with porthole mirrors on the walls and a set of ship’s stairs connecting the three floors. After the renovations were completed, the family decided to christen the house â€œShip Shape.â€ To see more of this house, be sure to pick up the summer 2011 issue of New England Home’s Cape & Islands!
