The TMS Team, December 2015

Is it just us, or has 2015 simply flown by? This time of year is a wonderful opportunity to sit back and reflect on everything that has happened over the past twelve months before diving into the new year. We spent some time reminiscing this week, and we’re pleased to say that 2015 was a banner year for TMS, filled with numerous noteworthy accomplishments both professional and personal. We’re excited to share some highlights with you today, and hope that 2016 brings just as many wonderful memories!

There’s a reason this time of year is considered the most wonderful, the most magical. The world is a little kinder, the nights a little cozier. The best part, of course, is being together with the people you love most. Cherish this month with these incredible Portsmouth events — Travel + Leisure called us “Christmas Capitol of America” for good reason, after all!

The following amazing photo-realistic images were commissioned by TMS Architects to provide a client with a full understanding of the rather unconventional concept and design of cottages for their extended family and guests.  These renderings will be used as a visual reference for the homeowners, the contractor and the architect to develop construction documents for future construction and were provided to TMS by Jonn Kutyla of PiXate Creative

TMS Architects’s principal , Rob Carty and interior designer, Cristina Marais,  recently worked with the historic Three Chimneys Inn on a project to provide some changes to the inn that will be in keeping with the time period of the historic structure.  Built in 1649 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Three Chimneys Inn is one of the oldest homes in New Hampshire.  It now serves as an inn in Durham NH, home to the University of New Hampshire,  with twenty-three guest rooms, dining in the historic ffrost Sawyer Tavern and serves as a host for many weddings, events and conferences.

TMS Architect’s guest blogger and local historian, J. Dennis Robinson,  provided us with a December post that,  in this season of light, appropriately turns its attention to electricity, Ben Franklin and an  historic Portsmouth home.

Your home with guests is a very different space than your home with just you, and preparing for visitors can be an overwhelming time crunch, especially with the heightened expectations of the holidays. With Thanksgiving just past and the rest of the season soon to follow, here are some of our favorite tips and ideas so that you can enjoy this time instead of being flattened out by it. Your home should exude what ‘home’ means to you, and put every guest at ease; be it a crackling fire in the living room, late night hot chocolate sitting around the kitchen table, or everything in between. Let your home be exactly that — for both you, your friends, and family.

Like a painting in which more detail is added or a piece of clay taking shape on a potter’s wheel, it is wonderful to see the construction progress of a new TMS-designed home.  This residence, in northern Massachusetts, has been under construction by DiPiero Construction, Newburyport, Massachusetts, for a little less than a year and the homeowners are finally seeing the light at the end of the project…choosing colors, tile, fixtures, furniture and artwork for their new home as the abstraction of the floor plans become individual and specific rooms.

In our opinion, there’s nothing better than being able to take someone’s vision for their dream home and bring it to life. That’s why we’re so thrilled that Coastal Home Magazine chose our Field of Dreams home as the cover feature for their Autumn 2015 issue. Collaboration was key in this project — the homeowners worked closely with TMS’s principle architect Bill Soupcoff and Michael Cebula of Cebula Design to ensure everything fell into place just right. Coastal Home delves into the details in their current issue, but we couldn’t help but share some highlights…
