Many people have not worked with an Interior Designer before and can be intimidated, thinking this service is only for the very wealthy. It works a little differently here. In the states, your choices are endless, limited only by style and budget. Here in Honduras it is very difficult to find resources in styles to which you are accustomed. I have traveled all of mainland Honduras, setting up wholesale accounts where possible. Unfortunately, Honduras manufacturers do not offer much remotely Caribbean, island style, as the mainland architecture and tastes are far different. I have accounts in Atlanta, Tampa and Miami where quality tropical decor is available with manufacturers such as Tommy Bahama, Padma’s Plantation and Hunter Douglas, to name a few. My resources are truly worldwide.
I can guarantee that you will spend as much or more to do the job correctly, yourselves as opposed to hiring Sand Castles. We have the wholesale accounts, the knowledge and contacts to get the job done. We deal with Customs with just about every ship delivery and have an account already set up for receiving your goods that arrive from Honduras, the states, or wherever they ultimately come from.
You will not have to travel the mainland, uncertain of where to find what you are looking for, or have to choose from the very limited selections here on Roatan.You will not have to deal with the hassles of lost shipments, bent blinds or wet electronics. We have the Furniture Movers, Punch List Contractor, Painter, Upholsterer, Cabinetmaker already assembled on our Team and ready to go to work for you…..One Stop Shopping.
I am very hands on and oversee each phase of the project. I take photos, email them to you as we progress and stay in close contact with you. I work for you, my client, not the developer or builder, to such an extent, one client refers to me as his Private Island Eye! If you are not on the island for the entire building process, it can become quite stressful, being so far away. With Sand Castles you will know exactly what is going on, each step of the way. If you need funds dispersed, we can handle that as well with bank accounts in dollars and lempiras.
Each design project is unique and different in its’ own way, so we offer our services either by the hour or by the project.
