It’s time for #strsharesunday! Today we are sharing The Chal-A! 🏔

This Stratton, VT a-frame is just beautiful. It’s very well branded. It’s a vibe. You can tell right when you visit their instagram. We know what we’re going to feel when we walk in, snd the vibe we’re going to have when we’re there. We love all the natural sunlight, and all the snowy pictures. We know that when winter comes around, this is the place to BE!

They’ve done a really good job of infusing photos and reels throughout their feed.

They also have a vintage Kohler trough-style three-bay utility sink. I think they found it at the dump, but I’m going to tell you, this thing is amazing! It has three faucets, and it is absolutely gorgeous. We haven’t seen that anywhere before. Well done! I think we need to hear more of the story on that.

The outdoor area is great. Fall is here, and winter is coming, snd this just looks like an awesome place to be!

Finally, the did a really good job of telling the story as they were building the property as well. Love it! We want to come visit!
