The guys from BBC Electric have been working their collective tails off, along side the local WAPA guys.  While we still don’t have power at our home on Mamey Peak, the guys are currently planting poles on our street and another crew just worked passed the Calichi at Picture Point, development site this week.   Unfortunately, there are ZERO transformers to be found on island, and it looks like we won’t see power until sometime after the 26th of this month.

We’re still waiting on our interior doors, and we’ve completed most of the interior plastering on the first four villas.  Once the doors arrive, we can finish off the interiors of the top two villas.


TotalWall, the final finishing coat of paint, mixed with textured sand, is on the way as the crew of masons continues to plaster every piece of raw concrete in sight.

Our tile crew finally returned from Santo Domingo this week, and the balconies of the poolside villas are currently being tiled.


The pool pour went well, and the work began in earnest to form the last half of the pool walls.  This pool will be unbelievable.

If you recall from earlier blog posts, the finished product will look like this…

Once the TotalWall is applied, the result is striking.  We’re really pleased with Lori’s color selection.  It has exceeded our expectations.


The contrast with the New Zealand blue wood tile really pops!

Also, please keep poor baby Cami in your thoughts.  She has the flu and is not feeling well at all. 🙁


And lastly…. this young gentlemen has grown up around this construction site.  He’s always hanging around looking for a hand out.


Have a great week everyone!

    • Thanks Mimi! It hasn’t been to terribly bad. It really does get better, and more hopeful, every day.

      We’re going to Miami for a few days to coordinate final items, so we’ll get a few day break. Hopefully with power upon our return!
