Satisfied_customer Another satisfied customer.  There is nothing in the world that makes our job more rewarding than receiving testimonials from our customers.  This week, we got word from 7 year old Isiah, who received a Vermont Woods Studios full size, solid cherry, Mission Style Bed as a Christmas present from his Grandmother, Annette.   She reports Isiah’s accolades:

“Farmor, I love my bed!   I’ve got the best bed of anyone I know.  And I got the best sleep ever.  Farmor, there will never be another twin size bed in this house!”

Well, thanks for your feedback, Annette and Isiah.  We are thrilled to have you join our Satisfied Customer’s Club.  May you have a lifetime of comfortable nights sleep on your new bed, Isiah!

 Vermonters are a resilient people.  Out of the ashes of Annette's farmhouse, come her many exciting ideas and plans for a brand new, greener replica of the c. 1814 Vernon landmark we all know and love so well.  We'll plan to chronicle Annette's progress here on our
Vermont Woods Studios blog as she meets with the areas most talented green architects and builders and moves towards her vision of a natural, organic farmhouse that blends traditional Vermont style with modern, energy-efficient design.  Have a look at Annette in her temporary quarters…a mobile home that the insurance company provided so she can still be on the farm and take care of her animals.  It even matches the old farmhouse!  Life is good.

Annette-Roydons-Farm
At 2:30am on Christmas Eve
, our landlord and wonderful supporter and promoter, Annette Roydon was awakened in her c. 1814 farmhouse by the smell of smoke.  She grabbed her cell phone and her dog, Hera and bolted down the stairs and out the front door.  As she was dialing emergency-911 she realized she was standing in the freezing snow and cold with nothing on but a T-shirt.  She had just enough time to run upstairs, snatch a pair of jeans and run out, before the house burst into flames.

Thanks to the quick response of the local Vernon Fire Department and six other fire departments from neighboring towns, the fire was put out by early-morning and no one was hurt.  Although the farmhouse and the adjoining office space which was our showroom were a complete loss, the barn was saved, as were all the livestock including horses, cows and chickens.

Now that several days have gone by and we've been able to get over the initial shock, we are looking at options for moving forward and will keep you posted here on our blog.  Our online Vermont Woods Studios store is functioning just fine, with no interruption, so that much is a big relief.

Annette gives us all inspiration after losing just about every material thing she owned, including valuable artwork, jewelry and family heirlooms that had been handed down to her over many generations.  She said that the outpouring of concern and compassion and the many offers of help were a heart-warming reminder of what Christmas is really all about.  She's unbelievable, isn't she?  Thanks, Annette for your indominatable spirit.
