Work On The House Continues...

We've been here just over a week now and we now have running water, showers and toilets. We still have things that need to be fixed, but at least we have some of the basic comforts of a home. They've started cutting and installing the quartz counter tops and what a mess that is. Fine dust everywhere.

But when it is all finished, it will be worth the trouble.

And while all the work inside the house has been going on, they have also finished the pool and were in the process of filling it with, what was suppose to be, water from the municipal water supply. Only, the water that came out of the tank looked like river water. And I was paying $300BZ for 3000 gallons of clean water, not this shit.

So, I told them to take it out. I was afraid it was going to stain the pool before the filter could take out all the dirt. Our only option now was to use well water from a local source. Lots of minerals and low pressure were the big drawbacks. I figured it would take over three days to fill the pool. But right now, our options were limited.

But the house is finally coming together and I'm looking forward to beginning the landscaping.

Gosh, I love that last shot of your house from below the stairs--so pretty!
Funny about the T.P.....probably because the Roses guy is a Belizean and has a monopoly on toilet paper and the importation of such.
You ever see his house in Cayo? I guess a monopoly has it's benefits!

The house is looking just great guys. I am sitting here in the Upstate of SC with the winds howling outside and a low temp tonight going to 18 degrees. Boy do I envy you!

Keep up the good work -- on the house and the blog!

Hi Sandy,
It's really starting to look nice now that the pool is in and the lawn is mowed. New pictures on the blog, as soon as I catch up.

Hi JR,
It's a nice and comfortable 73* right now, with a low of 59* tonight. It's getting down right chilly at night.
