Old growth cypress trees on the site were utilized in the master plan. The trees were milled on site and utilized in all the village structures for siding, ceilings, flooring, posts & beams. The open amphitheater is the heart of the village, and the cypress trees and lake are the backdrop, creating a natural feeling environment.
