Hello from the Miami airport! I am on my way home from a quick trip to Abaco to check on the progress at Camp David. I was SO excited when I arrived – it is looking like a house!
All of the regular windows are in – and the roof is on and sealed – just waiting on the metal roof to arrive and be installed..
This morning, before I left Abaco, I stopped by the house to take a few more pictures – and the siding is going on, and Lucger, our painter, is already priming to prepare for the finish.
Our crew works SO well together – and make the building process very efficient. Lucger is painting, while William, Roger and Steve continue to install siding, and Hartie and Andrew are putting in the door that faces the street. I wish I could have stayed to see it installed!
Camp David is going to be BLUE – with white trim. The two shades under consideration are ‘Isle of Capri’ and ‘Windjammer.’ Lucger painted some samples to help with the selection. They almost look the same.
The only disappointing news of the trip was that when they opened the crate with the HUGE windows/doors that face the beach, they found that 2 of the 4′ x 8′ windows had cracks in the corner. They are impact (hurricane) windows, so they are extremely heavy! The crate was not strong enough to support the weight. Tomorrow I will be ordering the replacement sections. Luckily it will not hinder the progress on the house. They will put in the doors/windows they have and continue working on the rest of the finishing.
I can’t wait to see the huge windows installed! They will be spectacular!
Here are a few pictures from inside the house:
The spacious deck will be a great place to relax and take in the view!
I guess that is it for my report from Miami. I expect to post another update around the end of December. Please be looking for it. Thanks! 🙂
