Under Roof!! Doors and windows installed

It's been a month since our last post.  We have had a lot of progress as we received our second container and the trailers with all of our roof material, membrane for the clay tile roof, tongue and groove for the ceilings, windows, exterior and interior doors, along with travertine.

This picture above shows the installation of the tongue & groove ceiling material which is then covered with plywood that is screwed to the rafters.  Once complete a waterproof membrane is applied to insure no damage to the finished ceilings.

As you can seen in the above and below pictures, the tongue and groove has been installed on the lanai and we couldn't be happier.  John is a master of mixing stain, he made a perfect match for the rafters to match the pre-finished tongue and groove ceiling material.

This picture above is a great shot of the covered lanai, stone columns and the location of the built in grill area.

The ceilings have been completed, the above picture is of the great room.

Here Andrew and Sheldon are installing the french door that leads from the gourmet kitchen to the lanai  where the outdoor built in grill is located.

We are completely pleased with the doors and the amount of openings in the great room.  These are ten foot doors with custom transoms above them.  Those have been installed also and the room is full of views from every direction.

The doors we have for the villa were a spectacular find, 8' tall and 3' wide, custom fabricated out of reclaimed barn-wood.  It gives the villa a rustic yet elegant caribbean feel and is like nothing we have ever seen on island.

We started hanging the tongue and groove in the lower bedroom ceilings.  This is an amazing upgrade that makes the rooms feel warm and inviting.

Well the windows are in along with the exterior doors. Plaster should be starting soon.

We have received the 7 pallets of travertine we will be using throughout the villa.  Along with the floor tile, we have custom travertine ledger stone for an accent wall in the 3 master bath suites. 

Hopefully we will have a new post soon, a lot to complete and looking forward to sharing all of our work & progress.
