We should be complete in the coming weeks, We will still need to do our final site grading and topsoil and seed in the spring.

Materials/Tools
All tools required are on site. We have our new saw.


Food and Drink
As per schedule
Many thanx to our food teams Especially to Mary Grey of Gravenhurst who continues to go beyond all expectations

Inspections
We will be requesting our occupancy permit’s in the next two weeks or so, final’s will not be until spring as the gas trenches [ 1 | 2 ]were just done pre Christmas. Which meant we could not finish our final driveway grading.
