Today our team finished the creative work in Cultus Lake Adventure Park. It has been an exciting and busy ten month journey.  From the start we anticipated we would still be painting after the park opened it's gates but through the hard work (and lots of overtime) of our crew we managed to finish two whole days ahead of the park opening.

Last week of construction for Cultus Lake Adventure project

The Cultus Lake Adventure project is massive by most shop standards. The project started back in the middle of September of last year. Now we are in the final week of production with the gates to swing open to the public next Saturday. That leaves five working days to complete our work.

Our crew is now down to paint and details with eight more workdays before the gates open to the public. We installed two dimensional signs today. The first was on the Happy Horse Saloon.
