Coping through the pandemic...construction must go on!

Well, we're about 2 months into this quarantine thing and have had to postpone plans for an upcoming trip to Costa Rica....what a bummer...There's nothing we want more than to be able to hop on a plane and be in Costa Rica. Far be it for me to speak to soon, but it feels like the worst is over, as we start seeing some countries slowly easing up social distancing and opening up parts of the economy, and hopefully this means that by September we can head down south for a little R&R. If this pandemic has taught me anything, it's taught me that there are some things in life that you simply cannot control and that we take too many things for granted. It's made me appreciate the life that we live and the dreams that we are chasing - and to never lose hope. We've certainly had our fair share of curveballs thrown our way since we began this journey, but we continue chugging along and this dream is becoming a reality.


Check out some of the more recent pictures of our construction - and more to come.


Lots of action, roof beams up, walls getting prepped for stucco and paint. This is a view from the front of the house through to the back onto the pool. The open walls will all be closed in by large glass patio doors.

Earlier stages when the roof beams were just being installed

View from behind the pool pump room, up towards the backside of the house.

Another shot from the backyard up towards the house. This area is where our garden will eventually go.
