We used 24 x 24 inch porcelain tiles , the ceiling is  1 inch hardwood boards and is a work of art in it’s own right. The windows are louvered to allow maximum air flow , with noseeum screen to keep critters out.

    No wonder you’re smiling Newton! Well congratulations your place is the dogs b****cks!!! Breathtaking views, and a sneaky pool table! Not quite the modest abode you first set out to have….here’s me thinking you were going to be skimming it, you’re living like royalty! Good for you both…missing you both terribly so happy for you both xxx
