When the owners purchased this Main Street downtown Stowe property, their initial thought was to have renters on the second floor. Rehabilitation proved costly, and they really did want the building to sit closer to the street, so the final decision was to tear it down. Designed by Cushman Design Group, it was the first new building to be constructed in Stowe’s downtown since the 1940s. Time was of the essence, but Sisler Builders was able to meet the deadline by panelizing much of the structure—floors, walls, roof system—built off site, delivered by tractor trailer, and installed with a crane. Managing the urban infrastructure with a building that close to the road presented challenges that tested Sisler Builders’ abilities. The end result is a building that is tight, efficient, and crafted for low maintenance. It was scrutinized by Vermont WorkSAFE and meets their safety standards.
