Stonehurst Milestone: Got Our Certificate of Occupancy!

Celebrating Our Certificate of Occupancy for Stonehurst Douglas, Sean, Liz, Loryn and Michelle marked today's occasion with a festive bottle of wine, a couple crystal goblets and a card with their photo on it. Thanks guys!
Today was a big milestone for us at Stonehurst, our (soon to be) fine furniture and art gallery in Vernon, Vermont. We received our Certificate of Occupancy (CO) from Brian Johnson, a Vermont Regional Fire Prevention Officer. The CO is a pre-requisite for moving into the new location as it formally documents compliance with all zoning and construction permits, like those related to the environment, life safety, health, fire prevention, ADA accessibility and water/waste water.
Stonehurst Fine Furniture and Art Gallery | Vernon Vermont Kelsey Eaton took this picture of what Stonehurst looks like today. Not exactly ready for prime time but all our fire prevention, ADA accessibility and other environmental safety and health codes are met. We can start moving in this weekend.
Ken and Dennis have been working non-stop for many months with Jeremy Coleman (of J Coleman Architects), Bob Furlone and Scott Strong (of American Construction) and many Vermont state representatives to ensure that everything at Stonehurst was done properly and according to code. This was the culmination of a lot of blood, sweat and tears today and we are sending out a huge THANK YOU to everyone involved.
And how cool are Douglas, Sean, Liz, Loryn and Michelle for marking this occasion with a festive bottle of wine, a couple crystal goblets and a card with their picture and good wishes on it? Thanks, Guys!
