    GALLERY: Auburn Build - Daryn Slover/Sun Journal | of | Share this photo

    A home being built on Youngs Corner Road in Auburn is constructed using arches that were made in Canada with Douglas fir. The home is the first of its kind in the area and is the brainchild of Lewiston resident Thom Labrie of Shelter+7 and Bob Bower of Archtype Structures of West Gardiner. It is being built for a private home owner. The roughly 2,000-square-foot house will have two levels with an open concept and a vaulted ceiling stretching to 20 feet. In addition to the Quonset hut-looking main section, there will be a bump-out that will feature a sunroom, kitchen and entrance to the home.

"I am truly excited to finally have the opportunity to build one of my unique, low energy, green homes locally where it all started, along with working with a very nice retired lady client that is as excited as I am about her new home," Labrie said Wednesday.
