Maddeningly close. The painters continue applying coats of paint, stain and polyurethane, and the electricians are pulling lots of wire, installing all the outlets and exterior lighting.

 

The poly finish on the mahogany looks absolutely beautiful.

The headboards are also looking great, and after having the interior panels stained, are ready for a coat or two of polyurethane.

The plastering crew has been applying TotalWall and plaster to finish up the exteriors.  The entrance to the Tower Villa and upper 1BR villa is almost complete.  We’ll be installing Resysta, stained walnut brown, on the inset portions of each villa entry.

Here’s an example of Resysta installed as siding.

The scaffolding is now off the entry for each villa!

The poolside villas are moving forward with plastering, tiling entry ways and finishing off the forming for the stairs.

Stairs formed to access Poolside Villa #1.

The tile is in place on the ledge, so plastering this entryway is not far behind.

Poolside Villa #2 is full of kitchen cabinets and appliances.

After these pocket doors have been mortised, the final durock and plaster can be applied.

The Tower Villa is staged with appliances, and custom mill work in the final phase of finishing.

The crew will be finished forming the retaining wall for the drive to the upper 1 BR villa with stairs down to the pool deck and a few extra parking spots.

The pool deck is almost 50 yards long and the crew removed the floor posts from the southern pavilion.

The scale of the pool complex is off the charts.

One more week and these floor posts can be removed.

IMG_7088It has been a fun week with Cami, and she’s grown up a lot.  What a difference a year makes!

 

She paid us a visit this week with Champion.

 

Charlotte also got a great deal on a mirror and Cami got to practice a little self reflection.

 

She also got to take the ferry to St Thomas for story time.  Always a fun ride on the big ferry!

 

Have a great week everyone!
