There are two options for floors and tile work in the Owner/Resident Bathrooms.
The showers are low entry so they can be converted for assisted wheelchair use and headers for rails are already in the walls.

Looking forward to the Open House on the 16th of September!
Thanks Jerry Isenhart for the great photos and videos of Ridgeview at Lake Chelan!
Here’s a video:
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.
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:
Yes, that is even sunshine out there!
And, the soffits above the deck are mostly done:
Soffits at Ridgeview Place in Chelan
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:
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!!
Electrical and framing are basically complete. Next comes insulation and sheetrock. I expect next year we will have real holiday decorations in place this time of year!!
What a fun and beautiful place this is becoming! I am excited.
Let me know if you want a tour.
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.
Some ceiling detail in the caregivers’ apartment.
It is pretty exciting as I really had not grasped how beautiful the spaces are from the plans.
Entry and deck roof sheeting
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.
