A local man from Machias has started building custom miniature lighthouses for people near and far.
“My husband Ken makes them. He’s been doing it for 15 years now,” said Donna Pothier. “We moved up here 16 years ago from Boston. He lost one leg. He needed something to do so he came up with this idea. Started with small ones but then people started asking for one that fits over a well pipe and he designed one that does.”
