Firstly, I want to thank the folks down in Loreto who have sent us emails and photos updating us on our home and the surrounding community. I love reading all the details and vicariously living the experience of spending the holidays in Loreto through your eyes.

Sue and Tom M. were able to successfully get into our home which is a couple of steps ahead of theirs and took some photos. I know others have tried but it’s harder these days with the fences in place. In general, I think the extra amount of security is a good thing to ensure that our homes are safe now that they have cabinets, lighting and doors in them.

I was amazed at the progress from the last set I got. Thanks Sue and Tom for the pics!

Our fountain. You can see the vegetation is now in place.

Some of the drawer fronts on our kitchen cabinets are now in. The cabinet doors are not in place yet. Clint and I had selected the doors with the nail head designs in them.

Our BBQ cook station up on the terrace is coming along. I like the extra storage under the sink and you can see the new cement tile flooring which are a new addition to the Agua Viva homes.

    Hi Loni,<br />
    Looks great! Have you been down since your Living Room was fully painted? I was under the impression that the color was supposed to be SW 6523 Denim. But the photos show a lighter color. Have you been able to match the color swatch? Or, did they change the shade?<br />

    Hi Loni,<br />
    <br />
    Just a quick clarification, the blue house is ours not Tom and Sue's. Theirs is directly north of ours. They were taking the picture of ours from your terrace and forwarded it to us. We'll all be neighbors soon. Thoroughly enjoy your blog!<br />

    Hi Pat and Barry, I didn't match up a swatch of SW6523 Denim while I was in Loreto, but I can tell you that it was darker than shown in the photo. <br />

    The photo color will not be completely accurate because of the camera and computer screen you are viewing it with.<br />

    Thanks Mac and Gail for the clarification and glad you enjoy our blog. We have fun with it. Excited about the neighborhood taking shape!<br />
