This video shows the Vermont landscape for an entire year from the view at the top of Mt. Philo in Charlotte, Vermont. Everyday, for an entire year, Timothy Cummings climbed to the exact same spot at the top of Mt. Philo to capture this beautiful timelapse. The 10 minute video moves slowly, but is continuously changing. Watch as the seasons change with a show-stopping view of Lake Champlain in the distance.

Mark Twain once said, “If you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes.” His words come to life in the video as you can see the ground switch from snow covered, to brown, back to snow covered in a short period of time. This video shows some of the most beautiful days in each season, where the grass is as green as a crayon, the trees are sprinkled with golden leaves, or the landscape has turned into a winter wonderland.

If you’re anything like us, you can’t see enough beautiful videos and photographs of the Vermont landscape. For more gorgeous photos of Vermont’s four seasons, take a look at our “Vermont Beautiful” board on Pinterest.

vermont maple open house weekend

Love Vermont Maple Syrup?

So do we! This weekend is the Vermont Maple Open House Weekend. It is a perfect time to visit some Vermont sugar houses to see how nature’s candy is made. There are over 100 farms and sugar makers opening their doors to the public this weekend, giving you a chance to watch the maple sugaring process no matter where you are in Vermont.

Take a tour of a single sugar house or several this weekend (March 23-24). There are sugar makers both large and small scattered through out the state, so you can witness traditional techniques like boiling sap over a wood fire or new high-tech practices. No matter where you go, you will see an exciting process and get to taste some of the best maple syrup in the world.

March and April are prime sugaring months in Vermont, so this is a great time for the Vermont Maple Open House. If you can’t make the trip, or you want to do a little homework before this weekend, visit the Vermont Maple website to learn how maple syrup is made.

You can see a list of participating sugar houses on this Google Map, by visiting the Vermont Maple website, or by searching by county.

See you at the sugar house!

Benefit Furniture Sale

Our Acting Webmaster, Loryn, does a lot for Vermont Woods Studios. She was hired as a Marketing Assistant and when our webmaster left, she seamlessly took on that role. From making our website beautiful, to leading our benefit meetings, to writing about green interior design on our blog, Loryn does it all- with a smile.

Now, we have the chance to do something for Loryn and her family (the Dion’s). We received the news last week that Loryn’s family home in Fall River, Massachusetts, suffered substantial damage after a tragic kitchen fire. Luckily, all of her family members and pets are all okay. The house’s kitchen was affected the most by the fire, however, the rest of her home has smoke and water damage too.

To help the Dion’s, we’re doing what we know best: selling furniture. We will be having a benefit furniture sale on Friday, March 22. For every sale we have that day we will donate $50 to the Dion’s.

Help us help the Dion’s! This benefit furniture sale falls on the same day as our Make A Set Furniture Sale, so you can save big while helping one of our hardworking employees. The more you buy, the more you save, and the more her family benefits!

Spread the word about our benefit furniture sale by sharing this post with your friends! It’s one week away!

Vermont Furniture Showroom
Much work has been done to the previously detached accessory building. The former studio apartment is now connected to the rest of the building and is under some major remodeling.

Since the new addition was built to attach the two existing buildings, the crew has been hard at work connecting the new “L” shape structure to make everything under one roof. A key part of this project was aligning the roof lines. The detached accessory building’s roof line was substantially lower than the new addition and the main house’s roof. Another key part of this project was getting all the floors at the same level. The original flooring structure was removed and lowered almost two feet. In the “After” photo above you can see the lowered floor in comparison to the old entryway door.

This room is going to get new, larger windows in a later part of construction, in addition to a cherry wood floor and a ceiling made out of reclaimed wood boards. We aren’t certain what this floor space in our showroom will house, but we think it will display our bedroom furniture pieces.

The accessory building was last used as a studio apartment, so it needed a lot of dismantling. You can see the living room area in the “Before” photo above. On Facebook we have a Stonehurst-Before construction album, where you can see a photograph of the apartment’s old kitchen, bathroom and loft sleeping area.

Much remains to be done but the hard parts and hard weather seem to be passed us. There is still construction work being done in other areas of Stonehurst, and we will bring you up to date the next time around. We are expecting the showroom remodel to be completed in mid May!
