Here’s a video: https://goo.gl/photos/Hjxew9wf7rv8Y2ym8

These show the shop going up on the outside, final grading happening, etc.  On the inside, finish electrical and plumbing are happening and final cleanup is in 2 weeks with furniture going in after that.

 

A couple of new details….

The stone was put on the fireplace today:

Yes, that is even sunshine out there!

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!

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!

 

 

 

New web site on housing for adults with Autism, Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities

The Autism Housing Network‘s goal is “Bringing together the best ideas in housing for adults with autism and 
other intellectual / developmental disabilities.”  That is does a great job of and it includes listings for housing options that are both available now and in building and planning stages.

It is a very well done web site.  Check it out:  http://www.autismhousingnetwork.org/

Our Autism Speaks House to Home Entry

Autism Speaks House to Home Resized

We entered the HeroX, Autism Speaks House to Home Prize and all entries were due just before midnight, March 1, 2016.  Wish us luck!

Since I think folks might find it interesting, here is our 10, or so, page entry:  Ridgeview Chelan House to Home Entry.

I think it gives the best description of the project that has been available so far.
