A 40-year-old Portland business looks to the future

Retail manager Steve Bortles, a company veteran of 13 years, helps customers in the company showroom. Capozza Tile has built its business through careful attention to the people it works with. “We’re a business, but without having positive relationships with all the employees, our family, our vendor partners, customers—without putting our relationships first, we wouldn’t succeed. It’s an important part of what we do. We don’t want to lose the family aspect of the business,” says commercial division manager Joe Capozza.

Making Plans

PROFILE - January 2014
by Penelope Schwartz Robinson | Photography Sarah Beard Buckley

From the Swiss Alps to the coast of Maine, Chris Robinson and Crystal Daggett-Robinson build beauty wherever they go

A newly built 1,000-square-foot high-efficiency home on Rackliff Island, Spruce Head. Designed to be a rental property and eventually a retirement home, the space is balloon framed, so all interior walls can be reconfigured to create a more open space when the artist owners retire. At that time, Daggett will remove the exterior wall facing the ocean and build a solarium over the deck.
