I guess I should say expansion plans, hopes and dreams. Well at any rate, we are once again very excited to be out-growing our space at Vermont Woods Studios Furniture and we're looking at options for the future. We love our landlord here in Vernon and we've already rented a second suite from him. But we're also starting to think that purchasing a property might be smart.
Here's Ken, waiting for me to climb onto his bike as we cruise around Vermont looking at potential places. We asked our favorite real estate agent, Suzanne King of Masiello Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate for help and she's been kind enough to show us dozens and dozens of properties, including these:
- Brattleboro, High Street
- Brattleboro, Western Ave
- Stowe, Above the Clouds (not really, but I wish ;)
I feel horrible asking Suzanne to trek around all over tarnation with us, but as we grow our needs keep changing, so the properties we looked at 3-6 months ago are no longer adequate. We keep needing more room! Lately we've been looking at an old, historic property in Marlboro, Vermont where the Skyline Restaurant used to be. The building is dilapidated but it's on a property with a stunning view and it's right in the middle of Vermont's Green Mountain Forest. It's an interesting possibility as we work to raise awareness about forest conservation and our green mission.
Have any other ideas we should check out for our next move? Let me know and I'll keep you posted on our progress as we move forward.
