You Are Here

Define your exact corner of the world in a whole new way with this industrial outdoor sign. Artist Chris Crooks takes the address of your home, business, or favorite place and converts it to its geographic coordinates, reducing to two decimal points to differentiate between you and your neighbor's front door. Set against a backdrop of richly patinated oxidized steel, your family or business name (up to 12 characters) are laser engraved in block lettering along with the corresponding coordinates. A contrasting stainless steel backing makes the lettering stand out, while the weather-resistant cedar wood backing and steel stakes make this a long-standing welcome to your garden, front door, and place in the universe. Handmade in Corona de Tucson, Arizona.

Includes screws for wall mounting as well as stakes for ground mounting. Click to view mounting instructions (also included with item).

“I started out from my garage. As the business grew, and my wife’s and neighbors' patience stretched, it was time to move to an industrial space. There I can bang and grind at all hours of the night. It's 1,000 square feet of pure metalworking nirvana.”

Chris Crooks has taken a somewhat winding road to get to where is now—creating imaginative lawn sculptures inspired by the southwest landscape he calls home. After graduating from the Art Institute of Philadelphia, Chris worked in advertising, then ran a printing business with his wife, while painting during his free time.



It was when the couple moved to Tucson for a change of scenery that Chris collaborated with a metal art manufacturer and fell in love with the art form. Eventually, he began designing and making his first metal sculpture collection from his studio nestled in the foothills of the Santa Rita mountains, just outside Tucson.

“I always wanted to make a living doing something genuinely enjoyable,” he says. “To get up in the morning raring to go, and never having enough time to do everything you want to do.”

      Comments about UncommonGoods Latitude Longitude House Sign:

      My boyfriend and I ordered a sign for his parents and a sign for my parents for Christmas. They came in the mail and we were THRILLED. The quality is amazing. I cannot not say anything about how well they hold up outside because they haven't been dismayed outside yet. They're honestly so nice I am worried to have them displayed outside..going to try and persuade everyone to hang them in the house somewhere if possible. Very excited to give these gifts. PS: This is my first online review that I have ever posted. That's how thrilled I am. Hopefully they hold up well if our parents decide to put them outside!

        This was a 52nd Anniversary gift to my husband who loved it. Workmanship and materials are awesome. A very special item. Not something you'll see many people have. Certainly made to last - just like us.

                    What do you buy for your 50 year old son who is a "master geocacher? This is it!! Great "pre-weathered" steel. Should last at least 100 years. Hope they never move!

                            Bought this product as gift for my hard to buy for husband. We purchased our first beach home and this was the perfect gift. Unique, well made and a definite statement/conversation piece. At our first gathering with friends, everyone wanted to know where I purchased the sign. So thankful to find this product and plan to order more!
