While the major accomplishment of the past two weeks was pouring the deck and connecting the two wings, the real story was lack of progress.  No doubt we did get some things done, but we had 2 rain days and 2.5 “holiday” days in the past two weeks.  Here in St. Croix, Good Friday and Easter Monday are both holidays, plus most of the guys knocked off early on Thursday.  I don’t begrudge the guys their holidays, but the rain has been a bit frustrating.

As mentioned, we poured the deck last Monday.  With that complete it really feels like we are going to knock out the rest of the shell fairly quickly.  The columns started going up shortly after the deck was finished and the the footers for the main living area were dug today.  The roofers have finished the office and guest bedroom roofs and are now beginning work on the flat roofs around the office and over the deck, which will sit on the columns.
