HUGE WEEK FOR OPaL:: Panda, Canal, Baby Shower & Wood!
Let me explain:: We are expecting the delivery of our Panda Jockey from Cleveland anytime today. We also just received the final rendering for Canal Mews so now they can finish the site I.D. sign and web site. Additionally, we are prepping the model home for a HUGE baby shower this Sunday. And the lumber should drop (that's a builder term, lumber drop) at The Stables, where we could be under roof in 2 weeks!!

|Canal Mews @ Palisades. This will be such a fun project to build this summer and fall.|

Just incase you never knew, when a developer has a perspective rendering done (one in which the homes are drawn from an angle other than straight on) the artist must first make an wire frame of the structure to ensure the homes will be seen from the angle the developer desires. Years ago they actually made the model from wire but of course today they are drawn on computer.
This is the perspective for OPaL's ever-so-cool 'Coastal Greystones' we will be building in the Palisades area of DC this summer. Once approved the artist will add color to the homes, landscaping and a blue sky. Fun stuff.

Moved into our new office and model home a few weeks ago and it is just amazing. So many people contributed to this beautiful home, none more that the creative minds at GPS Designs and P Four Interiors.
This home will take OPaL to unforeseen places. I will publish professional photos in a month or two, just waiting for some more art to be delivered and of pool furniture. :-)

The plans for the Joe P. beach house in Rehoboth are almost complete. With that classic beach elevation, center courtyard for pool and gazebo plus wide open interior spaces, beamed ceilings and that intangible OPaL feeling.....this will be quite the gathering place for friends and family, OPaL style.

|GOING WITH THE JOCKEY, LIKE THERE WAS ANY DOUBT|
|Using the colors from our OPaL Custom Home logo collage, the artists have created a clever pattern for the silks of the Panda Jockey. We also changed the number to 13, our lucky number.|
