After a late-night fire destroyed both Craft Stove and Hansen’s Furniture in Mount Vernon last year, the southwest corner of West Division and Wall streets is beginning its rise from the ashes.

Chad Fisher Construction began work on the new Craft Stove building March 16, and expects to be finished with the project in early September.

The 8,194-square-foot building will include retail and warehouse space, along with an outside display area.

Nearly every subcontractor and supplier working on this project is from Skagit County, says Duke Fisher, project manager for Chad Fisher Construction.

“It is great to be working with high quality local subcontractors and suppliers on both projects,” Fisher said. “Most of them have memories of being in both Craft Stove and Hansen’s Furniture prior to the fire, so you feel that sense of ownership in the project from everyone, and an excitement in being part of the rebuilding of these two great Skagit Valley businesses.”

After completion of the new Craft Stove building, Chad Fisher Construction will begin work on the new Hansen’s Furniture.
