I haven't been to Merida in almost a year. I just had the pleasure of being there and staying in our partially finished house for 9 days. We had a working bathroom, a bedroom with a mattress, an air conditioner, a plastic table and two chairs and a fan.
I have not seen the house come alive as the details were added. I think the beauty of the house are in the many details that are being added. Many which I had no knowledge of. Many of which I did not like when I saw photographs of... yet when I saw the house last week, the beauty of it all showed and totally charmed me. I see Roger's brilliance. He loves the play of shadow and light.
