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.
