A “commissioned” piece for as local bank. They were going to give it away as a prize, but the manager liked it so much it has been put on display in the lobby.

Please note, we are located right on the shore of lake michigan here, so lighthouses are all over town!

The windows are smoke colored plexi., the door/trim is white oak, and the cap on the roof is flashing spraypainted copper color.

Don’t see too many horizontal light house’s, very unique and original and can understand why the bank manager likes it so much.

That is a really neat piece, I see why the bank didn’t want to give it away.

That is really really nice. My dad and mum used to be lighthouse keepers on an island in Bass Strait. I might just have to steal you design. Is there a light inside?

Sweet! Can’t complain that the work was kept by the bank when they paid the bill.

Thanx for your kind words…and no, this one is not illuminated, although I did put holes in all the right places in case the future owner wanted to add a light.
