Please, Come In

I do read your comments and I have not forgotten that you want to see what the inside of our house looks like.  Let's take it from the top.  This is what the ceiling of our round house looks like:

The door in the middle is the door to the master bedroom.  The door on the right is to the boys' room.  The "window" on the left is really just for ventilation.  There is no air conditioning.

This is Jonah and Andy's room:
We are still waiting for our furniture to be delivered.  The kids will be getting a bunk bed.

This is their bathroom:

This is our bedroom:

The windows face the east and the sun rises here at 4:30am.  Our first purchase was blackout shades.

Here's our bathroom:There is no door on the bathroom and no door on the shower.  Using this bathroom is a family affair.

This is the staircase between the main floor and the upstairs:
The window is actually open to the outside.  It cannot be closed.  The geckos love that.

This overlooks the kitchen:

The vertical slats are also open to the outside, which make the bats feel welcome.

Next time I'll show you what's on the main floor.


  1. Hi Sam! What a pretty house you have, although I do not at all envy your wildlife population. I wanted to share an idea for keeping some of the critters and bugs out. I bought some tulle at the fabric store (much cheaper than the soft draping mosquito net, but just as effective.) It is actually called tulle (toolee) here and it comes in black, which I liked for screen purposes. I just used a regular stapler and stapled it to the wooden shutters on Elisa's windows. It works really well and cost about R$4. Can't beat that. If you want other screen ideas, let me know and I'll explain how Rute is going to do hers. Good luck! We love you guys!

  2. I love your house! I can't wait to see it after you put the samantha touch on it!
