Like most Maine residents, by the time spring rolls around and the warm weather is here to stay, we find ourselves anxious to get outside and enjoy the sun and the warmth nearly every chance we get.
This time of year, everyone at Huston & Company becomes keenly aware of how thankful they are for Bill’s green thumb. Thanks to his gardening efforts, the outdoor spaces surrounding the workshop and showroom not only look lovely and inviting to our guests, but they’re also the perfect place to enjoy a lunch break outdoors.
During this time of altered schedules and distancing, we’ve found ourselves with the ability to tackle some items on our to-do list that might not have otherwise taken priority. For instance, the Huston & Company sign that Bill made 25 years ago was in need of some attention and care, so he took the opportunity to craft new wooden brackets out of white oak to hold the sign between the posts. The sign itself, made of mahogany, had aged to a gray over the years, but after touching up the painted letters, sanding the wood, and applying some teak oil, the sign looks as good as new and is now ready for another 25 years along Log Cabin Road.
