Rondout House Property Sign

A BEAUTIFUL Victorian mansion and former a bed & breakfast in Kingston NY, Roundout House is now home to a small day care center. This handcrafted sign on the property identifies the historic building and welcomes children and parents each morning. The sign has become an eye catching neighborhood landmark. Downtown Kingston was originally called the Village of Rondout and that is where the house gets its name.

Pine cones and needles were chosen for the sculpted artwork as conifers are common in the area and look great in all seasons. When choosing an art subject for a sign that needs to be seen and recognized from a distance - it is often better to take something small (like a pine cone) and enlarge it - rather than take something large (like a pine forest scene) and reduce it. The enlarged pine cones are easy for drivers to resolve and identify at a quick glance. For those walking slowly by the sign the hand sculpted details on the pine cones encourage people to stop and take a closer look.

Historic Kingston experiences both hot summers and very cold winters. So the HDU/PVC materials chosen for this sign are perfect for weather-ability requirements during changes of season. Danthonia prefers HDU (High Density Urethane) to wood for signage that hangs out of doors. HDU signs will not split, warp or rot in the elements the way that wood signs do. The PVC core is ideal for holding eyebolt hardware firmly even when the sign is swinging in strong winter winds.
