Calm foggy day at Blue Bayou Resort. Pictures were taking on Easter Sunday. It feels like someone stole the beautiful mountains in the background. But nonetheless, it’s still serene to see the fog hovering over the calm harbour. John Denver wrote “You’d be a poorer man if you’d never seen an eagle fly.” Your bound to see them here at Blue Bayou Resort.

Try to post this last night and for some reason it didn’t work to plan. We’re just waiting for the temperature to rise so we can glue down the linoleum to the floor and install the insulation membrane when we get it next week. Then this one will be ready. The only dome on a wooden deck because of the ravine setting. Also the only dome without a bathroom. Are septics are higher than this one so we opt into having one without a bathroom. It will sleep six once it’s done, making room for bigger families. ... See MoreSee Less

Enjoy the View at Blue Bayou. Late night/early morning for me. Things are coming along fine, it’s not raining. Forecast is starting to look much better so will be pounding the concrete soon enough... literally. 😂 ... See MoreSee Less

Our first concrete slab is now in the books. Got four ready for pouring, if we could only have a few good days in a row without rain or snow, they will be easier to get done. Goal is to have 15 more ready for when domes comes in at the end of the month. 👍🏻👍🏻

Blue Bayou Resort Update. We pour this concrete slab on Sunday and it’s now Tuesday. I’m just about to go do (hopefully) the last pass. Waiting for warmer weather to pour the next four. Looks like we’ll have some warmer temperatures this weekend. My goal is to have sixteen ready for when the domes arrives at the end of the month. You can see how my coat got really dirty pouring just one. I’ll be covered in dirt when this concrete project is done.

We had a visitor here today snooping around. We spooked it a little as we were heading to the store. I open the side door heading out and there it was. Miss Moose. 😋The first time I saw a Moose here. I’m sure there coming when I’m not looking 😴.

Blue Bayou Resort 2 minute updates. Damn concrete not drying very fast this time of year. I didn’t add calcium to it because it’s above freezing temperatures but it’s taking a long time to dry. This video was done early morning. I just did another pass on floats a few hours ago. I’ll be doing another one tonight when it’s stops raining. Probably be done sometime tomorrow 🙄. It’s been raining all day which is good in a way to get rid of the snow but it makes my finishing the concrete job more challenging. This place is a mud pit at the moment. I could probably fish in the yard in some areas. 😂 ... See MoreSee Less

Blue Bayou Resort Update. 9h30 and still have a concrete pad to finish. Today was the first day using the bucket mixer. I would usually do a bunch of these at the same time but it’s always good to start with one. We’re supposed to have rain tomorrow so I will probably have to Mcgiver something to cover this pad. I don’t think that she’ll be ready when rain comes in. Got something in mind... you’ll have to wait till tomorrow. 😉 ... See MoreSee Less

How to built a concrete base for Geodesic Domes. We are in the process of forming pads for our Domes. Because of my concrete experience, it’s cheaper for me to built the base out of concrete. At the same time, it will outlast any type of decking and it will also save me time doing the showers. My shower base will be incorporated into the concrete saving me costly shower stalls and the time putting them together. It makes them also accessible.

Those are the many reasons why concrete slabs became my choice of flooring for my Domes. Looks like we will be pouring concrete sometime this weekend if weather cooperates. I may do all four pads in one pour.

We should have most of them ready when Domes arrives at the end of the month. Then Dad will be back to give me a hand, walls will be prefabricated and everything will go up like LEGOs.

Another Blue Bayou Resort update. I always want to keep my videos as short as possible so I shot a second one today to show progress. We’re getting everything ready so that when the domes shows up, everything will be streamlined. We’re prefabricating all the walls at the moment and also prefabricating all of our plumbing so that when we start pouring concrete, the preparation will be all ready. It’s too cold to pour concrete but warmer weather is just around the corner. ... See MoreSee Less

Blue Bayou Resort update... Dome #23 under construction. We are using this dome as a template for the others, thus having plumbing pieces in it. But dome #23 will be the only dome without a three pieces bathroom, only electrical. I don’t have it available yet on our web page because I was waiting for answers. This done is set lower than all septic tank available and we would have needed an extra pump tank for it. Lot 20, 21 and 22 will become Tipi lots because of the same reason and we will move three domes in the centre open area. I will be making these domes available when I find some colour pencil so I can redraw a new map. Going to Sydney this weekend, on my list of things to do. Nonetheless, Dome #23 will have two queen bed and a futon. It will accommodate 6. I’ll probably have it available to book online this weekend. For those party of over four, we have a dome solution for you.

I’ve shared this once but I love this video and I just got to share it again. When you come to Blue Bayou Resort this Summer, you’re coming to one of the most beautiful serene spot in all off the Eastern part of our country. South Harbour is the place to be. Come glamping in style at Blue Bayou Resort. Stay in one of our Geodesic Domes or Tipis. We rent Canoes, Kayaks and SUP boards. Take one to the Beach but keep in mind that we want our boats back. 😉 Come to The Heart of the Highlands in South Harbour and rejuvenate your Soul. There’s no other place you’d rather be. Come to where the mountains turns to sand and the land meets the sea.

Blue Bayou Resort update. Today we were prefabing a bunch of things. We are getting our forms ready in advance and we’re also working on partition walls that will go inside domes. We’repreparing everything so that it all goes smoothly and quickly towards the end. I mean when there’s no more snow. When domes are up, it won’t take too long to complete because everything will be streamlined and ready for assembly. We’ll become the Ikea of geodesic domes. ... See MoreSee Less

Blue Bayou Resort update. Wood pile is getting bigger everyday. Bathroom facility is getting done also. I will call for inspection next week and we will be able to close all these walls. Electrical will be done on Monday also. Next week we will be starting to get ready to form pads for the domes. Once we get good weather, we will be pouring concrete right away. Plus 8 degree Celsius and up, will be pouring concrete days. I’m starting to get excited with this project. If I can get a dozen pads ready for when I get domes, things are going to be up very fast in this park. My partition walls will be all prebuilt and if weather cooperates, they’ll be all painted too. We will spray painting them just to save time. It’s a beautiful +6 degree Celsius at the moment and all workers are here on this beautiful Saturday. ... See MoreSee Less

I was working late tonight moving snow off some lots. It snowed yesterday then it rain. I cannot wait for the snow to melt so I decided on going with plan B. Clear the snow off my lots to start my plumbing and the concrete slabs. This video was taken at 6 pm when all my workers were gone. I’ll take some with them around tomorrow. Trying to keep ahead of them and keep them busy even if the weather isn’t cooperating. Got here on Monday night not knowing how much snow was left on the ground. I got my guys doing stuff that needs to be done while I get ready to do the slabs for the domes. When the good weather comes around, we’ll be ready for pouring concrete. ... See MoreSee Less
