We're currently in our temporary house. Since it's 'temporary', no make-ready was done. However, we found it much more livable than the permanent house we first got in India, or at least, the house was clean. Despite that there was no rain for a whole month, the floor is always clean. Believe me, if it's dirty, everyone's feet would tell you that since all houses in Indonesia are shoe-less houses.
The pictures above pretty much show what it looks like on the first floor. there's also a half bath near the foyer, and a maid's quarters and another full bath for live-in maid on the first floor. On the second floor, there're 4 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. We don't have a live-in maid so there's extra space for storage.
Since we don't know when our permanent house will be ready, we might choose to stay here for the next 3 years. The location of our current house is perfect - close to the school, shopping areas, and work. The only down side is that there're no kids of Elizabeth's age so it'll be a little tough for her. Eddy's got a few 5-year-old boys to play with in this compound so we barely see him during the day.
