Sneak Peak!

18/05/12 11:05 PM

We are dying to share our plantation with everyone, but as you might have read, we have to wait until we finish with the legal stuff. But we thought it wouldn’t hurt if we shared some of the architectural details. We are hoping in the next couple weeks we can share the whole thing!
