Five years. That’s how long ago we purchased the property for Reverie Retreat. If you had told us in 2012 how complicated it would be, and how long it would take, we most likely wouldn’t have done it. It’s probably best that we didn’t know.
And yet, here we are, five years later, and things are finally moving forward. I’m excited to report that our designer (Jenny Levitsky – Ultimate Designs) has completed initial designs for the buildings, with enough detail to be able to put everything out to bid. This will give us solid budget numbers so that we can go to a lender for financing. Still too soon to put any kind of timeline on our opening date, but this is a big step closer!
For you geeks out there who love blueprints, here is the overall site plan. If you want to get a closer look, click on each image and it will enlarge.
Here is a blueprint of the main hall, followed by several elevation drawings from different views and a rendering:
I’m so encouraged that we have reached this milestone in our project development. The next big hurdle (once we get the contractor bids in) will be convincing a lender that our project is a good prospect for a loan. Just don’t go back in time and tell me all it took to get this point. That would scuttle the whole thing.
