We’re running about 10 days behind schedule right now, but from the looks of the site, you probably couldn’t tell. After several months of foundation work and preparing tube steel, there are now buildings on the site. We’ve framed the floors and walls for all but one of our building modules this month (roof beams and roofs will go up in June and July), and it’s becoming easy for people who visit the site to now visualize what we are doing. Not a lot to say, other than thanks to the framing crew — and the concrete crew, as foundation work is still going on as well, mostly at the pool area. So here are some pictures and commentary.
The welding lessons I took last month are paying off, as you can see me here dutifully welding a beam to a column at one of our guestrooms. (I’m kidding, of course: I’ve made a decent beach barbecue rack, but you do not want me welding your hotel or homes together. This is in fact Alexis.)
Above you’ll see a few of our guestroom buildings; the photo was taken from another guestroom.
Seen in the image above are our two suites (it’s a two-story building; one suite per floor), taken from the same location as the previous picture. Not a bad view of the beach from there, as you can see in the left side of the picture.
Another view of our suites, from the front. They look big, no? At 512 square feet, not including their big 24×8 decks and numerous floor-to-ceiling windows, they’ll be pretty sweet indeed. Yeah, I know, it’s a terrible pun. But I had to do it; there’s no way the marketing team would let that into the real copy describing the rooms, so it’s my only chance. (Editor’s Note: Ben is absolutely right. All sweet suite puns will be ruthlessly excised from the resort marketing copy.)
Next month: more foundation work, roofs, and the beginnings of electrical and plumbing work. Stay tuned.
