New Pictures 12/24/2015
Here are a few pictures of our beautiful house sinece the last update. The Municipality has finally (almost) finished the work in the street. What a mess. 3 months of dirt, dust and craziness. We have made a veggie planting area and Yvonne is populating it with seed and starts. Our across the street neighbor, Jaco is a new gardener. Making plants from seed makes him very proud. He's given Yvonne a number of interesting things including a "black tomato".

We are very, very happy with how the house has turned out. Our contractor is one of the most detail oriented people we have ever met. His work is fantastic!
