In May we finished the exterior grading and planted grass plus added a small walkway to the front porch. We tackled the neglected downstairs by installing the bamboo flooring we had imported with a tile surround wrapping it around the stairs to the Dutch doors. Wow, what a difference to have a finished living room! The laundry/bathroom finally got a toilet and a shower installed so the house has two bathrooms, one of each floor. Monique bought some used furniture so we had places to sit and enjoy the finished rooms along with beds for the other two bedrooms. Its nice to have a furnished three bedroom house now perfect for guests.
