From the foundation to the artwork, every piece of Self-Reliance has a story. One of the most interesting narratives is that of our Maple flooring, which was all harvested and milled within 20 miles of our building site in Middlebury, VT.
Our Logistics Coordinator, Stanis Moody-Roberts '11, oversaw and documented this short but fascinating journey. He worked with Middlebury College Forrester Steve Webber to select and harvest nine trees that were near their final stages of life.
Filmed, edited and narrated by Stanis himself, the following video truly captures the spirit of sustainability and connectedness to earth that Self-Reliance embodies.
