We are back in Lovina and have been to the plot and seen the progress made in the preparations there. In addition, we have had several meetings with Roland of Tropis Living and are getting the drawings refined so that they can be submitted to the authorities to get a building permit.

A two major concerns have been the roof material and the entrance-way. We have now decided to use sirap ulin (ironwood shingles) on the roof and we are still working on designs for the entrance. The one shown here is a gate-like entrance with a concrete roof which is needed to catch rain from the valley in the roof overhead and either a Javanese or Balinese hand carved wooden door behind.
Most other things are small details like the electrical outlets, switches, selection of floor materials etc.
