We arrived on the island October 26th and spent the week living in a chaotic construction zone, working 15 hour days to try to get the house done for our first guests who arrived October 31st. It came down to the wire, but we finished it! It was exhausting but incredibly rewarding to see the things I had dreamed up in my head spring to life. It was also a bit of a relief to see that everything I chose was working well together… when you pick things out online, or from catalogues and samples, it’s always a bit of a gamble. The kitchen was completed Friday, which we LOVE, along with the final painting and electrical. We’re now waiting on furniture which should arrive at the end of this week. We’ll still be finalizing details over the next few weeks, but it’s finally livable and very comfortable. We love the flow of the spaces and overall vibe. I will be posting many more photos once the furniture arrives, but in the mean time here are some iphone photos of the house now, and what it looked like just a few days ago.
