Range Lights, Arrowsic, ME c. 1896
Although we have the privilege to work on many interesting projects, this project is very near the top of the list. We were hired to restore the front tower in a set of two Range Lights in which provided a navigational aid to boats traveling on the Kennebec River. The basic idea is that when you are miles down the river you can line up the lights and once they line up you know you are in the channel of the river. They were built in conjunction with other aids at that time to get boats into Bath or farther up to Merrymeeting bay. Our job way to do a complete exterior restoration of the building in which also included the replacement of the floor system. We used white oak timber for this repair. After that we worked our way up using the clues that were left as well as the knowledge of the non-profit in which made it all happen.
