Property Update

Bullet New Pool Fence

Our swimming pool fence suffered damages from a branch that broke off of one of the large trees during the last wind storm at the tail end of winter.

The fence is fully restored, and fully reconstructed, raising the height to 6 feet all around the perimeter.

Bullet Casa Consuelo Renovations

Casa Consuelo bathroom renovations are complete, along with new flooring to replace the old carpet, and new baseboards. All of the wainscoting and wood trim are being restored this week. A range and hood will also be installed in the kitchen this summer, providing a full kitchen.

Bullet Pond Update

The drought, unseasonable warm weather, and lack of incoming fresh water has fed rapid growth of pond vegetation. We recently had the surface vegetation harvested to remove it, and have treated the surface in order to inhibit additional growth. We have installed a fourth aerator to achieve better overall circulation of the water. We will be keeping a close watch on the pond throughout the summer as the dry warm weather continues.
