Rooms 11 & 12 – Update

Another update showing the progress on the 2 additional rooms being built at Chanters Lodge Livingstone just about 10 kms from the mighty Victoria Falls! The rooms face the lodge swimming pool and garden and will have one double bed, with an en suite bathroom and seperate shower. The room rate for 2010 will be about US$89 per room per night including english breakfast and free transfers from/to Livingstone Airport. The design is the same as we used for the additional poolside rooms we completed in 2006.

When will the rooms be ready? It’s really hard to say – unexpected hurdles can appear from nowhere. My current dilemma is the roof. The dark red roof tiles I’d love to use are very expensive and I’m just not sure if they’re worth it, or whether we can achieve a good finish at a more reasonable price using another material or tile type. The roof is very important visually as it will be seen from the restaurant terrace, garden and pool. I won’t be able to prevaricate for too long!
