As this holiday season approaches we are both thankful and excited to share with you the progress of the wellness center construction at the Land of Light!
Our amazing building crew – Adam Bearup and Bob have been “kicking it out” and here are the photos to proved it.
The original barn with 12 foot porch. First step was to remove the porch so we could enclose the area and make it 2 story like the rest of the barn.
Then the cement was removed and new footings were poured.
We discovered 8 beautiful salamanders had snuggled up to the footings. Of course they were saved!
Eric Lantz, our awesome excavator and rock mover, found this beautiful giant rock in the sand where he was digging to put the parking area. He said it was very unusual to find a rock this large in sand. Estimated weight – 6000 lbs! Gabby and her cousin Lilly approve of the new rock member of the family.
Our intent is to put the most positive energy possible into the healing center. Once the concrete was removed, with the help of our friends Tina and Rachel (and of course Gabby!), we buried special crystals and affirmations in the foundation of the barn.
Our dream was to have radiant floors so it is cozy and comfy. First the insulation, then the tubing for the radiant floors, then on a cold rainy Halloween the new cement for the barn floor was poured – voila!
Mary Ann, Libby and Adam (our main builder) did a blessing ceremony as the new wellness Center was being created. We placed large special stones all around the barn and asked for this to be a place of special healing for all who come.
