As we patiently wait for final official permissions to proceed with the construction of Hazelnut Inn we are hard at work around the edges of the project. The septic field is now installed and the final grading of the backyard is complete. Just before quitting time today we began the planting of the seed for the 8,000 square foot backyard lawn. Very soon this area will be a lush green lawn. This will be the private area of Peter & Hailey’s residence. The picture below is taken from my studio’s windows where I will be able to watch my grandchildren play as I work. It is going to be wonderful having all my family so close!
