Mary Ann's Tropical Building Page

This is the web site for the three villas that I built on Anguilla and the villa that I am renovating in St Barts (see Azu Villa Renovation Page), plus tropical construction tips and resources as well. These construction projects started in 1997, although land acquisition and architectural planning started in 1995. Every stage of the construction is recorded here.

We rent the villa in St Barts and the guest cottage in Anguilla (La Vanda) and the villa at the top of the Anguilla property (Mimosa), but we keep the beachfront house and pool for our own use. And we have created a name and web page for the overall completed property: Bellamare

For details on the main Anguilla beachfront house, visit the Residence Construction Page.

For the technology center, visit the "Clubhouse" Construction Page.

And finally, for the guest cottage, our first attempt at construction on Anguilla, visit the La Vanda Construction Page.

How to Start a Renovation Project?

If you are the Green's, the first step is to install high-speed internet service. So you can keep in touch! At our Azu Villa in St Barts, this went reasonably well. It worked the first time. But the installation software was only in French.

Second step was to tear out the old tile in the kitchen. Here are the original tile counter tops:

And here is what the kitchen looked like after the tiles on the counter top and walls were removed:

And we ripped out the cabinet next to the stove, so that we would have room for a larger new stove:

Another early step is to select the colors for repainting. Notice the aqua paint samples in the picture above.
