Memories of blissful summer days on the New Hampshire coast compelled designer Jim Gauthier to find a spacious beach home for extended family and friends. He found a house he liked in Hampton Beach but it lacked curb appeal. However, the affordable, six bedrooms house being so close to the beach made him reconsidered. With help from Bruce Miller, an architect he had worked with previously, the house was transformed into a bright and beautiful home. Let's take a look.
