D AB All Seasons The murky palette was one of the reasons those old Maine camps seemed dark. Another reason was they employed far fewer expanses of glass because of cost and comfort in cold weather. In fact, many were not winterized at all. This house was designed for comfort year-round, and that's a challenge with so much glazing. Triple-paned windows help cut drafts and energy bills.

"There used to be such a dif- ference between what architects could do with modernism in California versus what we could do in New England. But that's changed a bit. These improved windows are part of what allowed us to make this house as open to views and light as it is. Now we can ask, 'What are the things you really want to enjoy?' and then, 'How can we get it as efficient as possible?'" At Sebago Lake, sources of enjoyment are myriad. But the play of light over the water is among the greatest pleasures it provides. All those windows and the split- apart plan position the Fantasia Residence especially well to frame those fleeting scenes of delight. Says Jeremiah, "The sunset across the lake is pretty spectacu- lar." No doubt, it is: a beautiful moment in the present already beginning to fade into the past—captured by Eck/MacNeely.
