Christopher Robinson – Owner
Christopher was born in Rockland, Maine but grew up in a small village outside of Geneva, Switzerland. The son of a gifted translator, the grandson of a Boston carpenter, Chris inherited his grandfather’s skills. He loved to spend time in the village hardware stores as a child, learning everything he could from the locals. He performed most of the handyman projects in the family’s old farm house in Chesérex, CH and in their other old house on the corner of Main & Robinson Street in Thomaston, ME. Chris moved to Cushing, ME in 1986 where he designed and built his first home with guidance from his father-in-law, Wesley Daggett. Wesley asked Chris to join his construction business as a partner. Chris took the business skills he learned in university and as a financial analyst for Procter & Gamble, AG and combined them with the hands on experience he gained by working with Wes. Chris and his wife, Crystal, now run Daggett Builders by themselves but they haven’t forgotten their roots, the people, and the work ethic that put them where they are today.
Chris, Crystal & their trusty horse, Romeo
Interests: Traveling, biking, hiking, kayaking, horses, trying new foods, and reading.
Favorite Family Getaway: Acadia National Park. A perfect day consists of a hike or a bike trip, and then enjoying a leisurely drive over the stone bridges with their trusty horse Romeo pulling the carriage. It ends up with swapping stories over a campfire at night.
