Life has kept me away from the blog lately...in fact, I was talking to a fellow runner the other day and realized that since May 1st, I have run a total of twice...twice in four months!! So busy!
For the past month or so, there have been few updates as to the construction progress of Aloha Home. Apologies. But there is good news ;) During that month or so of blog silence, a lot of the small things were finished up with the rooms. The parking lot was cemented, the covered parking was finished, the furniture, washing machines, and water machine were installed and covered...
We put together a Facebook page for Aloha Home Apartment to help with spreading the word to people who live in the area that Aloha Home has vacancies...basic FB advertising ;)
All I can do at this point is introduce the blog to the completed Aloha Home!
There are many photos that the family took over the past week or so as plants were being planted and the construction workers left the premises. A lot of the photos are taken at night, I like the night photos.
We have been slow to get the rooms rented out, but they are slowly filling up. At the writing of this blog, there are 5 tenants living in Aloha Home. P'Nut and P'Ing are occupying two spaces; the mini-mart and the first room on the first floor.
Let's see if we can get another 5 rooms rented out in the next few weeks! We are not doing too much on that front from Bangkok. The family back home is having to take care of all of the tenants and potential tenants. We may be able to take over for them in five or ten years, haha...Very grateful for their help during the construction and into the "life" of Aloha Home!
We'll let you know more about being "landlords" as we eventually find out for ourselves. We hope that everybody enjoyed seeing (as much as we could provide) the building of Aloha Home from the groundbreaking to the final stages of minor fixes and installations. We certainly enjoyed sharing it. Something you never imagine that you would be involved with...and suddenly you are! Nerve racking and exciting at the same time.
