The finished van. Cushing, Maine

From Chrisso Rheault's piece in Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors: "Maine is full of old farms with old barns, many with vans parked nearby. But on an old family farm in Cushing, two vans parked in the dooryard were not what they seemed, nor was the shop within the barn when I visited recently.
            "One van was a red Sprinter, the type found making deliveries all over the world, the other was a black GMC panel van, albeit with suspension changes and a window or two extra. Both are the work of Eli Ellis, a young Cushing native who has turned these standard examples of cargo carriers into something more special...."
