Christmas on St John!

The weather has been beautiful ,and hopefully we'll get a break from the rain for a bit.  But not too much of a break!  The team continues to move forward with focus this week on  Poolside Villas #1 & #2 and finishing off the form work for the Tower Villa terrace and main support walls. Poolside Villa #1 has the floor slab form in place and the guys have been busy bending and tying steel for the support beams.  The outlined edge of the cantilevered porch (top of the picture) is now in place and the team will fill that in this week.  The scaffolding for the cantilevered porch is really, really tall due to the slope underneath the villa.

These guys are good.  And fast! Have a great week everyone!  Here's a pic (Artista filter) of K.D., Ting and Champion chilling during the Christmas break. fullsizerender-5
