The Green Ship

One of the great things about the Hazelnut Inn project is the massive amount of detail we have been able to include. By the time we are finished guests won’t be able to take five steps without seeing something extraordinary! Many of these features will be at eye level, some on the ground and others high in the air. In fact one of the highest spots on the North Star suite will showcase a spectacular weathervane. We debated a number of different designs and in the end we settled on an easter egg.

When it rains...
  1. There’s a song that says ‘it never rains in California, but when it rains it really pours.’ It’s true. The good news is that it makes for very short lines in the park which allows us to enjoy it even more. We are used to a little rain because we live in a rain forest back home. My phone just sent out a flash flood warning… but no worries for we are nice and dry in the hotel room. Maybe tomorrow we’ll see the sun.

Painting a Castle

The paint for the Copper Crown’s bedroom tower is rapidly coming together. We opted for four base coats (nobody wants to repaint it once it’s on top of the castle!). The stone around the window has its first blend coat and we will begin glazing very soon. I am looking forward to seeing it installed!
