Looking north, from the ocean, with bedroom on right getting ready for a ceiling pour.
Looking east across both bedrooms and living room. The far bedroom has forms set up for the roof pour.
The bush poles that will support the ceiling while the cement is being poured.

The windows look like they may be a good deal, but John is still working out the quantity and pricing. I hope this does work out because the windows are well made and can be produced rather quickly.
I have also been looking into hurricane shutters and the good news there is that there are many more options to look at other than just plywood. Some of the options look like they may be a good deal, with all the improvements in technology. I am expecting to get pricing tomorrow from a company in Jacksonville, Florida that uses Kevlar fabric as a hurricane shutter. Very easy to store and install.
The new polyurethane panels, that can be a cheaper alternative to metal shutters, are available at Lowe's. Easy to store and transparent, light can get through the panels so the house isn't dark as it would be with metal or plywood coverings. I'll post more information as it becomes available.
