We have rentals booked and a year of planning is starting to pay dividends. We are almost done…a lot has been accomplished in the past year. Windows have been installed all around. The Casa de Vieques has been transformed into the Garden and Pool Bungalow. The Casa de Vieques a year ago. The Bravos Bungalows now. The Pool, Sundeck, and Planters have been completed. The front and back fences have been built and the landscaping has begun. The Royal Palms planted along the street in conjunction with some of our neighbours will create a great entrance once mature. AC Installed in all of the bedrooms.

Water Water Water

We have had a false sense of confidence with our renovations, but surely a garden hose filling up the pool is a good thing… The dream is becoming reality!

The Plan Is All Wet – SOON!

Water will soon be in the pool and the  furniture will be arriving soon.  It’s amazing how much gets done in the days before we come for an inspection.  What will we do when all the planning and coordination is over?  Hmmmmmmm. Perhaps a couple of weeks at the Bravos Bungalows!
