A weathered “Private Property” sign, which
hangs on the wall in the link between the old and new
part of the house, is a nod to the past and the Floyds’
engagement with it. One day, when Bill was collecting
wood for a community bonfire, Heather’s grandmother
gave him the sign, which had been stored in her basement.
Rather than throw it into the fire, Bill gave it to the Mere
Point Yacht Club. It hung on the club’s walls for years, but
then one day Heather saw it in a junk truck, ready to be
thrown out again. She rescued it for a second time and
framed it for her house.
