FOCUS | inriverretreats

In Focus, the only option is to sit at the desk and get some work done. The only distraction is the view out the window of the four season garden that changes daily. Focus is big enough for a chair at a desk, a door and a bookcase along the back wall. At 5’ x 9’, Focus is a compact little structure that can be tucked away in the far corner of the yard.

Candace says: Ultimately, my goal is to graduate from college nearly debt free, with a home of my own which is mortgage free that I can be proud of. My budget for this project is $10,000. In hopes of keeping my costs under control and organizing myself before I run to every hardware store in the state, I have made a detailed spreadsheet breaking down what I will need for each phase and its price. parts & price list

The Concord Retreat | Inriver Retreats

The Concord Retreat offers a drawbridge-style wall that opens to the opens to the outside world providing a spacious deck for business or pleasure.

The inspiration for this structure came from the antique bulls-eye glass door and window pair that we found at an architectural salvage yard.  From those pieces we chose details typical of their era, specific to Concord MA.

The interior features such interesting details as a curved mahogany ceiling with skylight, antique fixed window along with matching lighting and buckshot pine flooring of varying widths.

Inriver Retreats are the product of a collaboration between boatbuilders and an architect, a manifestation of the owners’ sensibilities and realized by master craftsmen.

Our goal is not to mass produce hundreds of retreats a year, but to create something personal, exquisite and definitely special. We do difficult work for smart people, work that is exciting for everyone involved.  This kind of excitement travels through word of mouth, and from first hand experience.

We are interested in building relationships as well as custom retreats.
