Well we finally decided to take the plunge we are moving down there. We've been talking about this for years and so it is now a reality. The house that we are buying needs some work so I was wondering if anyone could help with the following.
Estimate for paint. We will need about 5 gallons for the exterior. And the interior will also need to be done.
Also is there someone on the island that makes thatched roofs the home has porch covering that need to be done. We can do all the work. All we will have is time at first but wanted to put it out there so that we know. I guess we could scour the island looking for palm leaves until we had enough but I figured someone had a business doing them.
THATCH Also be careful of what you buy! It needs to be NEW and cut on the full moon and not left laying on the ground. It should be bundled in bunches of 25 each. You also need poles and sticks and these too need to be cut at the right time. It doesn't cost a lot for the thatch nor for qualified people to do te job. Just be sure you get experienced people. Ask to see something they have done recently.
