One of the many beautiful stone walls at Guilford Sound, in neighboring Guilford, VT.   Torben Larsen, of Windham Growers has been doing amazing stone work there for the past 7 years.  We are fortunate to be able to capture some of his talents at Stonehurst this month where he’ll be creating stone pathways and landscaping.

Earlier this month I posted about Gordon Hayward, the landscape architect who is helping us bring our vision for the “Stonehurst Experience” into reality.  We want Stonehurst to be a peaceful refuge where customers seeking natural, eco-friendly wood furniture can come and relax in the foothills of Vermont’s Green Mountain Forest.

Beautiful, handmade furniture is just one part of the Stonehurst experience.  The other part is immersion in the lush green forest where wood furniture originates.  In order to provide access to the forest, we’ve turned to Torben Larsen of Windham Growers.  Torben is Southern Vermont’s go-to guy for top quality stonework and  landscaping.

Since we don’t have photos of stonework at Stonehurst yet, I thought I’d show you some of Torben’s work at Guilford Sound, an amazing, world class recording studio, hidden in Guilford, VT the next town over.  Torben’s wife Cynthia who manages the studio at Guilford Sound was nice enough to show us the inside of the facility.  Gordon and Torben toured us through the gardens, ponds, streams and forest.  What a place!  Check them out on Facebook.
