Above it all...

As recounted in previous posts, former Virginia neighbors visited False Bluff and decided they'd become neighbors again.

They purchased two of our building lots at Las Tortugas, the section of False Bluff set aside for those who want to be part of this adventure. They are taking the ‘raised house’ concept of the small place I’ve begun (see January 8, 2017 post) to a whole new level.
My structure is a room; their structure is a house - what we share is elevation.
K and L's house is raised to take advantage of both the view of the Caribbean and its constant breezes. Their front yard stretches almost to the beach tho they decided to build a bit back from the often temperamental sea.
Here's a slice of their view with just a glimpse of Cayman Roca showing on the distant horizon.

     And here's the beginning of their house...

K and L won't be on site full time and so a feature of their design includes an internal staircase which empties into their elevated living space. The man who's making the house happen is shown here, standing on the living room floor...or maybe on the front porch.
