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.
