Since starting this blog I have received quite a few comments about how basic, may be even primitive, the building techniques are. Well, if you want to see primitive building techniques in action take five minutes to look at ‘House Building Mayan Style. Compared to this the techniques for our build in Ambergris Caye,Belize look absolutely modern.’
Rose and I spent most of the morning on our computers communicating with family and friends in the UK and taking care of administrative matters. This done we had lunch and prepared for an afternoon visit to our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize and set off around 2.15 pm. We hadn’t travelled too far when we felt spots of rain so we decided to stop off and pop into the Harmouche Hardware store in Pescador Drive to look at the door knob range – we have to choose these for our new home. There was a reasonable range on display but nothing that really took our fancy.
When we came out of the store we saw that the heavens had opened and it was absolutely bucketing down ( English expression for pouring down). Only attired in our usual T shirt and shorts we elected to shelter under the canopy for a while in the hope that the rain would pass.
Wished we had bags like that with us!
We sheltered for around thirty minutes but there was no let-up and accepting that this was likely to be the case for some considerable time we set off home ( pointless going to our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize because even our guys would not be working in conditions like that).
A drive in rain in a windscreen free golf cart is not the most pleasant experience and we arrived home looking like drowned rats. A quick shower, change of clothes and a cup of hot coffee perked us up and we decided to make use of our ‘imprisonment’ by trying to take decisions about our kitchen cabinets.
For some considerable time we have subscribed to Houzz and have found it to provide some great home design ideas and we have filed things that have appealed to us. So it was time to open up the kitchen cabinet file.
We decided some while ago that we will incorporate large drawers and sliding shelves to store pots, pans and dinnerware in as opposed to just having conventional drawers and cabinets. Seems more practical to us – easier to access things.
Here are a selection of the ideas we have to make our final choices from.
Decisions, decisions what will we choose? We have narrowed the choice down though.
