Shiver my timbers! I see paint and tile ahead!

Ahoy, me Hearties! I just found out from Clint that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day. The title of this entry is my lame attempt at showing some spirit in an otherwise hectic week at Adobe as I prepare for a slew of travel in October.

I’ve been so busy that I’ve neglected to post up the photos that Jane L. so kindly took for us from Loreto Bay until now. Avast ye and check out this Booty! Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!

These photos show some fantastic progress on our home in Agua Viva. All the interior walls have been plastered and accent walls have been painted. There has also been a lot of progress on the tiling work on the floors and in the bathrooms. Clint and I are really excited now about our trip out in end of October.

Kitchen. Accent walls painted, cabinets still have to go in.

From what we can tell of this wall of our great room, the home theater conduits seem to have been installed.

Our water fountain in the courtyard.

Tile work in the showers. From the photos we have seen of the Founder’s shower stalls, we were a little surprised at the use of blue tiles as the base tile rather than white tiles, however, we love the look.

Another shower stall, this one with the accent tiles in place. You can also see the niche for soap and shampoo.

First floor bedroom. Seems like the audio conduits are installed too.

Nancy climbing up the stairs. Jane behind the camera. I like the iron railings!

Upstairs bathtub. Clint and I got the jetted tub option.

Thanks again to Jane for taking these photos and for organizing our upcoming East Bay Loreto Bay Homeowners Gala! See you all there!

    <p>Thanks for the credit Loni. Actually, I was shooting video while we were there. Sharon took all of the still photos. The person in the photo with Nancy is her daughter Kim, who is also a home owner at LB. <br /> See you at the Gala and in Loreto!<br /> Jane</p>

    <p>Loni – are you sure about the jetted tub? We also ordered one and have been told we won't be getting it! Barry</p>

    <p>Hi Loni,<br /> It is GREAT! to see the progress. We also chose the Azul color scheme. I'm really glad to see it live in a real home. We also chose that blue tile for our master bathroom. Is it confirmed that you will get the jetted tub? We ordered it, but was told by our AM one month ago that they are no longer available. You are ahead of us, but not by much. So, hopefully we will be in for New Years. <br /> Congratulations on the beautiful casa….<br /> Pat and Barry</p>

    <p>Hi All – Just got back from Milwaukee. </p> <p>Penny – Yes, I am really looking forward to spending a long weekend in Loreto.</p> <p>Jane – Thanks for the correction. Sharon, much appreciation for taking the photos. Mucho gracias!</p> <p>Barry and Pat – You never know for sure until it is installed. However, based on the TCC CDC report the area is prepped for a jetted tub. Last confirmation from our previous account manager was that we were getting it and our option list that we signed off has it. </p>
