North Wind Manor: Update

By

The renovation of North Wind Manor is nearly complete! The fireplace from Tolkien’s Oxford house is up and ready, just waiting for a fire to bring it to life and books to surround it with good company.

Construction is estimated for completion next month, and then it’s on to furnishing! We’re crafting an intentional space to cultivate hospitality, creativity, and rest. A place of community, where creators can gather to cultivate and share their craft. Where theologians and authors passing through can hold symposiums and lectures. A place of beauty, where guests can rest and revive for the callings God has placed on them.

As we move into the next phase of modeling and furnishing to shape that atmosphere, we’re grateful for any continued support. Because we anticipate that this space is going to host a lot of people through the years, we want to fill the space with well-made and beautiful furnishings that will last a long time. If you’d like to cover any specific needs, here are some of the things we’re working toward as we turn this space from mere construction into a comfortable and rejuvenating space:

2. Large dining room table – $2500

    We lack liquidity right now, but that should change. I just wanted you to know I am planning to weave a “Welcome to North Wind Manor” tapestry for the wall if it meets your standards on completion. I can’t wait to gather again someday!
