1st of March Update on Ridgeview Place in Chelan!

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:

Boxes of cabinets about to be installed.
We still have snow on the ground, and great views from the great room at Ridgeview Place.
Quite a few cabinets….
The siding is mostly done….
Progress looks like this in construction!

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!!

10-22 Construction Update


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.

Lake Chelan’s home for Special Needs Adults gets a roof!


Things are really coming along now.  With the roof going on it is easy to see all the wonderful spaces that we have at Ridgeview Place in Lake Chelan.

This housing for Special Needs adults is a really cool spot!  Working on getting some vineyard planted around it next spring too!
