Well, it took nearly two months, but we finally received our CO (certificate of occupancy). Yeah, not sure what to say other than I suppose it isn’t surprising it took so long. DPNR, as with most government agencies here, are not in much of a hurry.
In mid-March HGTV’s House Hunters International was here to film. We really pushed hard to have the house mostly complete prior to their arrival. We got quite a bit complete but we lacked decorations and outdoor furniture, and we had bare walls. Our architects (and interior designer), Hera and Eduardo of Design Lab, lent us a bunch of decorations and asked a few St. Croix businesses to borrow some items. Pat from Sweet Lime Furnishings lent us some awesome outdoor furniture and some other decorations and Ted Davis from D&D Studio Fine Art Photography in Christiansted lent us some amazing photography for the wall.
Ted Davis came by to take some photos the day of the HHI shoot. Below are some of the photos he took. He made our house look incredible. Thanks Ted.
