We have started applying and carving the concrete “wood” beams holding up the bridge to the North Star suite. It is a little late in the year to paint them but that just gives us something to look forward to in the spring!
Traditionally, bricks are laid from the bottom up, but we’ve decided to be different!
Progress continues on the North Star suite of the Hazelnut Inn. The weather is wet but we are continuing to work under the North Star’s generous three foot eaves.
The Hazelnut Inn has a lot of vertical elements. Numerous towers, chimneys, standing stones, and (of course) a ships mast vie for passerby’s attention. And it does grab their attention - it is very gratifying to see cars screech to the side of the road with their occupant’s fingers pointing or couples out for a walk taking selfies in front of the sign. But my favourites are the children’s spontaneous cries of “That’s so cooooool”! We are a long way from finished but I think we are on the right track.
