First Step Toward Groundbreaking

Have you ever woken from a dream that was so incredible that you wanted to close your eyes right away just to recapture the feeling? If so, then you have just the smallest inkling of how we feel to see our project about to become reality.

We have just crossed our first major hurdle – rezoning with the county. To operate a business from a previously zoned residential property, this step has to happen before any major work on-site can begin.

I’ve attached our initial master plan sketch, which is not to scale and not terribly precise in terms of actual treehouse placement (since the actual trees on the property will be the real determinant for this). However, it shows the concept toward which we are working –¬† a new gatehouse welcome center and gorgeous entrance;¬†enclaves of 3 or 4 treehouses grouped to share parking, but separated for privacy; and renovation of the existing villa into a unique event center with indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate groups for retreats, special events, and meetings; hiking trails throughout our 95 acres; and a beautiful park at the center of the property for outdoor events or quiet inspiration for our guests.

If you explore our website, you will see that we have shared some of the initial architectural sketches and floor plans. Everything is still evolving as our team comes together to work on this, but it is SO exciting to see our dream for this place becoming reality.

Thanks to our current team, which includes ACM Design for master planning/architecture and Briarwood Construction for general contracting and construction, for bringing your excitement and interest to this project.

We’ll keep you posted every step of the way.
