The grass is finally beginning to fill in at Stonehurst, our new fine furniture showroom. The past few months have seen a flurry of activity while Bob Furlone and American Construction finished their last few projects. This week they will complete the installation of indoor and outdoor lighting and be nearly done with renovations.
But the rest of us will still have plenty of projects left, and one of them is exterior painting. So I have an opinion question for you. In the first photos of Stonehurst which were taken in 1869, the house looked much as it does in today’s photo above, except the entire building was painted white:
Sometime-probably in the 1940s the exterior was painted barn red, when Stonehurst was transformed by Elsie and Romey Racine into the Pine Top Ski Area.
My preference is to restore Stonehurst to its original white color, but I’m getting some push back from those who have grown really fond of the familiar red color.
So what do you think? Red? Or white? And remember I’m not talking about wine. Let me know in the comment section below or on our Facebook.

I used to think I liked the red better. It made me think of the Classic Red Farm Houses and Barns in Vermont. After seeing the white everyday going to work I am leaning more towards the white. It seems more Classy. So I think White over Red. Classy over Classic.

It would look nice either way; however, it is absolutely stunning the way it is. The red as a trubute to the past and the white with its clean lines speaks to a new birth and purpose. Can’t wait to see it in person.
