Everywhere one looks in the Cultus Lake Adventure Park there is a great photo to be had. From the road the park looks inviting. We carefully layered the elements to maximize the space but also to show great from the road. Everything is designed to integrate and work together
Cultus Lake Adventure Park is now finished and open to rave reviews by the public. It’s great to see everyone enjoying the project we worked on for so long! Since the park has opened I’ve been doing my best to get good pictures. The key is to get there at different times each day as the light changes every hour. I’ll be posting pictures of the final project in the next few posts
I design all of our signs to take full advantage of daylight. The textures, with the glazes are oriented to capture the highlights and the shadows are designed to create the illusion of even more depth. But we have to go further.
Many sign makers I know think mainly of the signs they create. A few try to incorporate some nice posts of perhaps a base. I like to go much further. The surrounding builds, structures and landscape are often part of our projects
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.
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. While we have been putting in about an hour of overtime per day and two saturdays of pure overtime the pace in the last weeks has been steady – not rushed.
As the project nears completion the pace is certainly ramping up. Today the last of the concrete walkways was poured inside the park, leaving only sidewalks around to go. 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.
There’s only ten more working days before the park opens. This means the hours are long and the pace is quick. We have one more day of sculpted concrete work to do and then it is down to paint. The clock ticks loud each and every day. Today the crew finished painting and glazing the upper false fronts
