Our House: Before and After

This is what our kitchen looked like when we first saw it in February 2010.  We asked the property manager/contractor if the owner would be willing to make some changes (and split the costs with us) and she agreed.  We drew him a picture of what we wanted, picked out paint colors, etc, and by mid-July (about 3 weeks after our return to the caye), our house looked very different!  Most of this was done by the contractor but Tommy added shelves throughout the house and we found furniture in various places. Belizeans aren't big on pantries or closets, so it is tough to find storage for anything, even things like dishes, dry goods, clothing...

Our dining table and chairs came from some ex-pats on Ambergris Caye who had closed a restaurant to move on to bigger and better things in San Pedro. There are two more out on the porch....this pic was taken before a party when we had pushed the table to the wall.  Note our lovely blue painted floors.  Love them!
