04-08-HatterasProzak5.jpg (64084 bytes)Outdoor Lighthouses - Custom-made

Any model - Any size

Lighthouse models can be scaled to any size that fits your decor.  A wide variety of outdoor lights have been made to date.  Just like our smaller models, these outdoor ornamental lighthouses are meticulously handcrafted from the finest materials and are custom made to match the original light or to match your personal choice or decor.  All lighthouses are treated with resin, inside and out, that makes them impervious to insects, rot or weather.  The following options are available at prices that won't scuttle the ship:


Window lighting


Remote (key fob) activated foghorn


Motion sensor activated fog horn


Rotating beacon with fibre optic ground lenses, visible for over nine miles
(standard on most models)


Remote on/off switch


Outdoor electric timer on/off


Dusk to dawn lighting


Solar powered beacon
