We should have an occupancy permit on the home in May. It is getting close and the shop will go quickly too.
A friend just emailed me this photo he took from the air:
The stone was put on the fireplace today:
And, the soffits above the deck are mostly done:
The cabinets are all installed, trim is going in inside and flooring. There are lots of things coming together at this point in the construction.
Let me know if you want to have a look!
There is lots of news on our Ridgeview Place project in Chelan!
Construction first, cabinets and flooring are going in inside and finish carpentry is getting started. The exterior siding is being completed and paint will start soon after that. The weather should soon cooperate to allow us to finish the slab for the shop area and dig in the sewer connection. It could have an occupancy permit in May! We are even ordering furniture.
This is turning into a home with incredible spaces in one of the most stunning settings in the country!
Here are some photos:
On other fronts, we have some interested families that we have started talking with about possibly participating in the project. We have drafts being done of the much of the associated paperwork.
The vocational side of the project is growing at an incredible pace and is on track to meeting our financial goals for it.
It is an exciting time for this project as it all begins to come together!!
Things continue to move along at Ridgeview. More sheeting on the roof is being done as the rafters are all in place now including over some of the outside areas.
The roof at Ridgeview is pretty dramatic, with tall soaring areas, skylights and other detailing.
It is pretty exciting as I really had not grasped how beautiful the spaces are from the plans.
It looks like we should achieve being basically weathered in by the end of November.
These skylights are quite a ways up!
The foundation has been excavated for the shop/work area as well. Ideally that will also be formed and poured in the next month as well.
The lower floor is now completely framed and sheeted. Floor joists should be complete tomorrow for the final level.
In this photo the framing crew is working away while a fire hydrant and water are being installed as well.
The fire hydrant!
Windows are being cut into the sheeting in this photo. Things like flooring, cabinet colors, counters, roofing and the selection of stone for use a few places are on the list to be completed soon, so they can be ordered in time to keep things moving along!
