Unfortunately, we were forced to head to the Eastern Caribbean for a design/build project. Some one had to do it. smile.gif400

That's a gorgeous build Dennis, congrats! I know you can't share specific details, but would you able to share which island this build was on? Were any of the materials locally sourced? I hope your crew had a good time out there! I spent a year in the eastern Caribbean and loved every minute of it.

Congrats, another superb job. Walls look great.

Is that big black thing in the ceiling HVAC?
