Details!

There are so many details to manage when rebuilding after a fire. We are fortunate to have this challenge. As artists, we deeply care about the aesthetic details. We want our guests to be creatively inspired and happily relaxed. Everything is being re-created with an artistic, rustic, and contemporary feel. I'm so happy that Tao and I have similar taste. He has been hand building the sink vanities out of the 300-year-old wood that was salvaged from the house fire. This important reuse pays homage to the past, with a nod to the future. And it's simply beautiful. He's also custom building the end tables for each of the guestrooms from that rescued wood. We can't wait for you to see it when it's finished!

Progress Progress Progress

March 30, 2017 marked three years since the fire in the main house. What an amazing three years it has been. We've learned so much about expecting the unexpected, working hard and never giving up. We've made great, albeit extremely slow, progress at Still Waters, with regard to the rebuild of the main house and preparations for our Company relaunch. We've been busy working on our other businesses, too, because those bills won't pay themselves! How grateful we are for the opportunities we create through Art of Tao LaBossiere LLC and Amy LaBossiere's marketing consulting and health coaching. We've been getting so many inquiries: Hey, when are you reopening? Everyone's been so supportive, encouraging and helpful. We are still not sure when our precise relaunch will happen, but we are shooting for later this fall. Life is what happens when we're busy making other plans. We shall keep you posted. Please keep us in your thoughts, and prayers if you practice. 

We have a foundation!

It's been a long road but here we see things starting to happen. Future home of the main house main entrance, five guest bedrooms, our managing partner's office (that's me!) and a lounging area. We are grateful to our Archimage Architects, Tetlow Builders and their team who are doing a great job with the rebuild. We always wanted the project to move faster than it has, but the timing is what it is. We had so many upfront delays with insurance and funding then the permitting process, so it's good to be finally getting on track.
