The rest of the walls are double skin Caribbean hard wood with an exposed rafter, loft like, ceiling and galvanize roof. The floors over the cisterns (veranda) and in the kitchen and bathroom areas are concrete with red clay tiles. All other floors are hard wood. The window openings have French style, white PVC, low maintenance, fixed louvre, shutters which are screened on the outside.
