Dream Team for the Grand Opening: Thank You !!!

We feel so grateful to have had such an extraordinary team to help us get this venture off the ground. One of our favorite parts of this has been working with all of the folks listed here. Somehow, the right people showed up with the skills we needed and with great “can-do” spirits; this was truly magical for us.  We’ll miss the energy you all brought to the house during the wonderful and crazy days leading up to the opening. We loved working with you all.   IMG_9262 Planning and Approval: Accountant: Craig Sickler, Sickler, Torchia, Allen & Churchill Architect: Kurt Sutherland, KWS Architecture Code Enforcer: Ray VanKleeck Lawyer: Sara McGinty, Sara McGinty Law Previous owners of the Basten House: Rodney and Lourd Basten Realtor: Laurel Sweeney, Prudential Nutshell Realty Town of Marbletown Planning Board, Rich Lanzarone – chair Town of Marbletown Zoning Board, Will Husta – chair House, Structural: Cistern Removal: Jurgen Beneke Electrician: Frank Meli Electric Electrician: Steve Schaefer General Contractor: Myron Baker (+ Will) Painting: Charlie Butterly, Linda Ferri, Louis Ferri, Kathryn Smith Plaster Repair: Charlie Butterly Plumbing/Bathroom Addition: EZ Does it Plumbing Plumbing/Steam Heat: Eric Heinz House, Interior: Antique Light Restoration: Tom Blake Curtains: Jack O’Connor, Dolores Ferri, Lisa Ferri Custom Picture Framing: John Cox, Refab and Lora Shelley Custom Furniture and Retail Shop Cabinetry: John Cox + Nate Wade, Refab Diorama Boxes: Mike Dwyer Hard Wood Floors: Joe Whitmore, Walk on Wood Interior Design Consultant: Nico Accardi Interior Painting: Charlie Butterly House, Exterior: Carpenter for Sign: Ron Parenti Landscaping: Nancy Cobb Paving: Nick DeLaura, Nick DeLaura Concrete Septic Engineer: Peak Engineering Septic: Ed Garland Stone Wall: Ryan Hoffstatter Storm Windows: Mike Dwyer Tree Removal: Ubashant The Den porch Fall Exhibit Artists and Graphics: Diorama Artist: Doreen Johnson, Doreen J Designs Diorama Artist: Lisa Ferri Diorama Artist: Lora Shelley Diorama Artist: Nan Bress + RCS Fine Art Diorama Artist: Nancy Ostrovsky Diorama Subject: Wendy Hollender/Dina Falconi, Foraging and Feasting Exterior Sign Design: Maria Reidelbach Exterior Sign Painting: Rosanne Percivalle, 2D3D Design, Inc Installation: RCS Fine Art Interior Signs and Graphic Design: Maria Reidelbach Logo Design: Chloe Annettes, Chloe Art and Design Steiff Vintage Animal Paintings: Lora Shelley Website Design: Chloe Annettes, Chloe Art and Design Museum: Art Designer and Installation: Rebecca Shea, RCS Fine Art Art Handler: Charlie Butterly, RCS Fine Art Interactive Designer: Adam Samson Intern: Andrew Morgan Intern: Tisa Lowen Steiff Archivist and Consulting: Rebekah Kaufman, “Steiffgal” Steiff Collection Donation: Grace Bress Steiff North America, Inc.
