Weaver House

The Weaver House in Brooks, ME is an original custom design by architect Leif Weaver.

Practical Sanctuary had the privilege of helping to finish the interior in support of Leif’s vision.

Clean lined cabinetry and subtly arched range hood showcases the cathedral vaulting and rough-hewn support beams of the architect’s vision.

Recycled teak table and low-hung Danish lamp set the stage for convivial potluck dinners, a staple of Maine social life.

Warm, neutral wall colors and wood-look ceramic floor tile provide durability, flexibility, and showcase the natural cherry-wood columns of the windowed stairwell.

Ladder well extends three stories, from bedroom to office.

Warm ochre of cozy bedroom walls follows the length of the ladder, providing visual continuity.


Stunning light fixtures and subtle architectural drawings emphasize the graceful lines of the house.

Retro octagonal bathroom floor tile used on shower walls add a subtle note of whimsy.

Home office nook is supplied with plants and natural light, creating a tranquil work environment.

Three-story south-facing windows provide natural solar heating for the entire house.
