Rock Wall Planter

By: | Tags: | Comments: 2

We started building our Rock Wall Planter a few days ago. Although it is going to look really cool, it will also server its purpose as a retaining wall in case we have any water issues (draining down the hill). We poured a concrete foundation and built up the walls 3/4 of the way with concrete blog. Then

One Way Car Rental – San Juan to Mayaguez

By: | Tags: | Comments: 1

We rapped up our days in Oklahoma shooting dozens of commercials this evening around 9:00pm. I have had about 5 hours of sleep in the past 48 hours. It's funny, things never go as planned when it comes to shooting commercials. Today, we planned on finishing up the last 5 shots between 10:00 & 2:00, but we kept

Regalos Del Quebrada

By: | Tags: | Comments: 1

One thing I learned while driving in Puerto Rico, is that I've been spelling quebrada wrong this whole time (it's not spelled cabrada). Any how, it rained like crazy today and I seized the opportunity of moist soil (easy to dig) and dug out muchas plantas en la quebrada. I brought them back up to the house, potted

I am in Oklahoma City for business...and one thing I have noticed is that taxidermy is probably big business here. First, in our hotel I noticed these zebra skinned chairs. I think I am going to try to buy this from the hotel and ship it home. It would look great in Summers office. Second: Check out the

Front Yard Cascada

I was wandering around the newly flat front yard, watering the coconut palms and it hit me...The way the yard has been terraced (on a slant) is PERFECT for a water feature. Pour a bit of cement down the slant, stick some rocks in it (we have plenty of rocks) and hook up some sort of water pump.

Guest Bedroom/Loft

By: | Tags: | Comments: 2

Here is a walk through of the progress on the guest bedroom and loft: Trey, the guy that did our drywall, suggested the loft idea and I LOVE the loft! It opens up a lot of room since the guest bedroom isn't very big. Stefan hooked up the room for me and put the bed in the loft

Mahogany Window Panes

Gino and Kevin have been working on the mahogany window panes and here is the finished product in the guest bedroom: They look really good! I was a little hesitant about using mahogany after seeing how expensive it is (we spent $1000 for a fairly small pile of wood), but I'm glad we did now. The mahogany looks

Armadietto Store in San Juan

By: | Tags: | Comments: 5

Before Stefan left for Oklahoma, we went shopping for a sink for the guest bathroom. Gino (our tile guy) told us about this somewhat high end bath and kitchen store in San Juan, called Armadietto. He wasn't kidding when he said it looked like part of the cemetary. It WAS part of the cemetary. Kind of an odd

The San Juan Hotel and Casino

When I met Stefan in San Juan, we stayed at the San Juan Hotel and Casino. It was about $150 - $200 a night and it was really nice. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel and the food was average and overpriced, but the service was great and the drinks were good. Stefan ordered the endless

Driving from San Juan to Rincon, Puerto Rico

By: | Tags: | Comments: 13

Yesterday I flew in to San Juan and met Stefan before he flew out to Oklahoma for business (yes, we do actually have jobs ;)...). After he left, I had to drive The Red Baron (also known as the Bulldozer) from San Juan to our house in Rincon. I was a bit nervous because I've never driven the
