Thank you! Almost exactly one year from our first telephone discussion on November 29th, 2010 – our barn was completed. From our initial design discussion until the last nail was driven into the final board, sincere collaboration and true artisan craftsmanship was delivered.
You spent numerous hours in late night discussions with me trying to understand the needs of me and my family so you could craft the perfect barn for us; your endurance and patience was truly amazing. Just days before delivery of materials to begin construction – Hurricane Irene pummeled Vermont. I’ll never forget the sorrow I heard from you over the phone in those following days; the communities you know and loved were severely damaged and your unbelievable lumber supplier was badly flooded. To my amazement, somehow--exceptional lumber and a can-do crew arrived on time and were ready to go.
The construction was guided by the incredibly capable Lucas and his right-hand man Morgan with periodic support from John and you. Lucas masterminded the daily activities with surgical precision and delivered the highest quality – as if he was building a barn for himself. Day after day, Lucas kept me in the loop and consulted me when appropriate for decisions. The crew didn’t skip a beat while demonstrating extreme professionalism and the occasional playfulness from the random interruptions from my daughters Isabella (5-yrs old) and Emma (3-yrs old).
The most amazing part of this experience was that my wife and I received a lot more than just a magnificent barn; we established deep new friendships with you and the crew. It’s hard to imagine the unfathomable truth that we’ve become very close friends that care deeply for each other. It’s hard to describe to the average person reading this letter how it’s possible to build such a sincere friendship with your barn builder. To them –- I say--you just have to meet George and see for yourself.
Sincerely, Brian, Luciana and the girls
