McCormick House New Build 2018 The original McCormick House, built in 1838, had an amazing inning, being constructed directly on the ground with no foundation other than its own floor beams. The house lasted well beyond any expected 'best-before-date'. After 180 years and 6 family generations, with great reservation it was decided to rebuild McCormick House with a new structure.

The old house was dismantled with much original wood and timbers being salvaged for incorporation into the new McCormick House. The new house is located on the same footprint as the old house and it will be completely green - entirely 'off-grid', utilizing a solar power system for all household electricity requirements.

With a little bit of luck and care we hope the new McCormick House will last another 180 years, at the least.

Additions/Improvements 2013 - Boat House


Additions/Improvements 2011: Renewable energy(RE) in the form of solar power. Installed is 370 watts of solar panels, providing all the electricity McCormick House requires.

Being that McCormick House was built before electrification, it's not easy being greenelectric wiring was never installed in the house. And with grid-based electricity only coming to part of Kennebecasis Island in recent years, there existed a natural opportunity to remain 'off-grid'. Although installation of a RE system can be a significant project effort and more expensive to implement than connecting to an existing power grid, it is certainly nice to be able to stay 'off-grid' and be green. As one old friend & visionary often said:

"it's not easy being green"

...but we are!
