Updates for 2014!

Wow, what year it’s been! Last year our big projects were connecting the duplex to the new sewer system and installing new HVAC systems - big expenses, but nice to have them done.  The old septic system was always a mystery and concern, and we find the house is cooling much better.

This year the big project was refinishing the tired, weathered decks. Success! No more cracks or splinters! We went with a light colored textured surface to keep things cool and non-slick. To further spruce up the outside, all the white deck rails, trim around windows and dormers were given a fresh coat of white. Other outside projects include new trash can platforms to keep trash cans from in front of the entrance doors (Scott’s big pet peeve!), and new built-in benches in front of doors. We find the benches helpful when unloading/loading cars, or as a place to sit and knock off your shoes for the rest of the week! Inside you will find new tropical colors in a couple of the bedrooms, new flat panel tv’s, new washer and dryer on side B, and other miscellaneous improvements.

We welcome your ideas and comments, as we are always trying to make St. Somewhere a clean, tropical, fun, relaxing happy place. Thank you for visiting St. Somewhere and hope to see you on the beach in 2014!
