Marbello Project: Update December 2011

As end of the year rapidly approaches we have been diligently working on completing the project.  Here are our latest updates and Happy Holidays to everyone following the project.

We have the floor of the pool poured. The blocks are being set for the walls. We expect to have the pool completed by the third week of January including the solar pool pump and filter.

The Kitchen has been completed and came out great! I am amazed at how big the kitchen feels even though it takes up the same space as a 20’ container. I reworked the design about a dozen times and I feel it was worth the extra effort.

The second story guest bedroom is finished and looks great!  We have the new railing up on the second story veranda and furniture out on the second story screened in porch.  Now both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have access to the porch. The custom weather proof cushions  being made for the set should be here by the end of the week.

We are starting work on extending the ground level stone work. We will have a longer stone driveway and the stone will also wrap around the house and pool.

We have a nice outdoor table and chair set on the rooftop terrace complete with a shade umbrella. The crew is working on the final coat of floor paint for the terrace as well.

Most of the work remaining on the inside of the house is all esthetic.

We have also been listing the container home on various sites for rentals. We have already started to receive inquiries and we hope others enjoy the house as much as we do.

I will begin shooting a promotional video for the container in the next few days and hope to have that on the web soon.
