Glass Cleanup, New Windows, Off the Rails!

We've said it before and we'll say it again..."No more glass railings!". We've now gone over the patio twice with a shiny new Shop Vac. Why? Bits of glass from 95' of railings can put a hurt to your house and cracks and crevices in coral stone. The coral stone is beautiful tile but man can it hold bits of glass!

The glass also got into the landscaping and the stones on the grounds, if you didn't know it you would think we meant to have it there glistening in the sun! I went out by hand to gather some up!

Our window and door glass started installation yesterday...all sliding doors have been installed!

 Beating a dead horse...no more glass railings. They wreaked havoc on our windows!

Now for the new windows...never thought we'd be so happy about GLASS!

Our contractor Princie started with the temporary railings yesterday! We will have these in place for our guests until our new alumimum and stainless steel cable railings are fabricated and shipped. 

 Gotta love Chalk Sound, one of the BEST places in the TCI!

Finally, we got one of the last parking spaces at Graceway market last night to buy some salmon for dinner...did it have to be next to the "other" yellow Mini Cooper on the island?

John is writing the post on the update for the donation efforts from our GoFundMe page. Yesterday was not only an epic day for Villa Capri, but also for literally getting roofs over Islander's heads!
