Holy Moly...construction is going gangbusters!

Yesterday I received several e-mails with photos attached from Roger, our esteemed architect. Wow! Talk about getting things done. I never imagined that two weeks later we would not only have walls but a roof too. And he is already working on the arches and we have some of the added height on the perimeter walls.
Now Roger tells us that he is ready to start on the pool so he can finish the need to have the wall open...I guess he wants to get the hole dug using a bobcat or some such man toy. So now Carlos and I have to choose from pool design A or B and tell Roger which one we want. Carlos will be home from Houston this week and we will sit down and decide... In the meantime here are some of the new photos... Thanks, Roger!

    1. That's only because you are still a snow bird. Once you move down,unless you are part polar bear or live in a/c, you won't be swimming in December.

    3. Theresa, I changed it but it says it doesn't find a 'feed'. I'll have to do some research and see if I can figure it out.

    4. I can't help you there, I do have an RSS feed. Steve Cotton figured it out though, maybe you can ask him?

  2. Already? It took us about three months to start to see columns! My gosh, you'll have it furnished while we're still laying tile.

    1. This is going so much faster than the main house! Roger and his crew has really amazed me this time! But as far as furnishing it...hmmm, I looked around last December and had a hard time finding things I liked and was willing to pay the price for. Not sure what to do about that!

    2. I've been getting sticker shock, too. I'd like to furnish slowly over time, but if I'm going to squeeze some rental income out of the house (which I'm still on the fence about) it will have to be fully decorated inside. It is a dilemma.

    3. To paraphrase an old saying, decorate in haste, repent in leisure. It's possible to find great furnishings here and it's possible to find bargains. Bargains are all about timing, someone moves and sells everything not necessarily dirt cheap but usually at bargain prices. It's easier to have empty spaces than be stuck with crummy stuff.
