HAMMER & NAILS
GORDON DIXON ‘In a small town like Stowe, customers, vendors, and employees become friends’ Robin Dixon. Both graduated from UVM and lived in Shelburne, where Gordon was a carpenter. He also Gordon Dixon owns Gordon Dixon Construction, located on Mountain Road in Stowe, with his wife, taught skiing for Sepp Ruschp at Stowe Mountain Resort. When Robin got a job in Stowe, they decided to make Stowe their home. They bought some land and set about building a house.
“I was 25, and it was the first house I built,” Gordon said. “I had a crew of Robin, a friend, and a few
carpenters. We moved into the house when it was bare bones, no trim or finishes, and we still live there.”
That was 29 years ago. Now they have three grown children and a dog, Rufus, the company mascot.
