This looks like a fairly typical rowhouse building in Red Hook. Until you see the green storefront and entrance. Then you realize that Roy McMakin has transformed the building while also restoring much of its original character:

From the photos provided at Domestic Architecture, it appears that all exterior doors in the house are finished in shades of green. And the front door itself gives a slight nautical nod to the neighborhood with its circular opening.

In pure McMakin fashion, the stairs are painted yellow, yet the wide-plank pine floors are preserved in their beautiful original state.
