LAmbiance-Pelican Bay-Naples, FL - "The best-laid plans of mice and men / Often go awry." LAmbiance’s plans didn’t anticipate the wrong color tile being delivered. The correct color tile was ordered and hopefully will be delivered tomorrow with work to being on the 2400 building on Monday.

At present we still have the wrong color tile placed, not installed, on the 2400 building.

As you can see from these photos, the roofers have worked their way counter clockwise from the 2400 taking the old tile off the roofs. They then have been placing the peel and stick water proofing materials on the roofs.

I’ve been told by our director, Don Wilber, that once the roofers get the correct tile, each roof should take approximately 2 days to complete.  My sister-in-law, Millie, is coming for a visit tomorrow from Chicago. I hoped that our building would be completed before her visit.  I have a feeling the noise won’t bother Millie because she will be too busy enjoying warm weather, blue skies, sun and NO SNOW!

LAmbiance Roof Replacements

LAmbiance – Pelican Bay – Naples, FL – Bang, bang, bang goes the hammer……on the roof tops of the 2400 building.  LAmbiance’s roof replacements project has begun!  If you enter LAmbiance and turn left, you will see what appears like yellow crime scene tape around the 2400 building.  No, there has been no crimes committed in the 2400 building, the yellow tape is CAUTION tape.  Please be careful driving and walking during our roofing project.

Caution tape marks start of LAmbiance roofing project

Our roofing project will put new roofs on all the buildings in LAmbiance, beginning with the 2400 building. The project will proceed CLOCKWISE through the development in descending order by building. Our Board thought it might be best to start with the Coach homes so as not to disturb the bulks of our residents who live in the Garden units.  These units represent 132 of our 188 units. The Garden units will start being re-roofed with the 1000 building.  This is scheduled to start on approximately April 25, 2014.  We could face weather delays. Buildings will have a notice posted before work is started.

Please understand that your driveway may be used by construction crews, so you will need to park clear of the construction for a few days while the work is being done.

Don and I also dragged our lanai furniture indoors because I was worried that dirt that might settle on the furniture. 

There are many things that Don and I love about living in LAmbiance.  Our Board puts a great deal of time and effort into making life as carefree as they can for LAmbiance residents. Kudos to the Board for having the foresight to make sure we had the money to replace our roofs and not be faced with a special assessment.

If you have been thinking of selling your L’Ambiance unit, please give me a call 239-594-2780 or e-mail me at Lynn@NaplesBuys.com I’d be happy to discuss current market conditions and the price I think your unit would sell.

Sunset at Sandpiper

LAmbiance Pelican Bay, Naples FL -  The holidays can be a stressful time. Tonight it was lovely just to walk down to the beach to see the sunset. I thought you might enjoy seeing it also. My darling brother send me a video this morning of the snow Chicago received last night.  I took a video of tonight’s sunset and sent it to him. (This is why God invented siblings.) I thought he might need to de-stress after shoveling all that snow!  Ho! Ho! Ho! Here’s the video of tonight’s sunset. How did I do?

One of the great things about living in LAmbiance is being able to walk down to the beach. While I miss my family and friends that are still back in Chicago, I’ll NEVER miss Chicago’s weather! Where will you be celebrating the holidays this year?

If you have thought of making a move in 2014, please give me a call. I have a list of potential buyers for L’Ambiance.

Pelican Bay Media Provider

Pelican Bay – Naples, FL -  On December 6, 2013 the Pelican Bay Board of Directors held a special meeting so that residents could voice their concerns about the proposed change of media providers from Comcast to Summit Broadband.  My husband, Don, and I attended this meeting.  Don has a business that helps people with their computer issues. Don was a HUGE proponent of a switch from Comcast to Summit Broadband.  When we walked into the meeting we were given this Dec 6 2013 PB Special Meeting Handout which detailed the hardware and services  we would be receiving from Summit and the costs involved. This handout also had information from the Vineyards, who has media service from Summit Broadband.

I must tell you that the meeting was well run in that Pelican Bay residents on both sides of the issue were able to voice their opinions. The Board voted unanimously to change from Comcast to Summit Broadband. Pelican Bay’s contract ends with Comcast in February 2015.

On another note, wild life IS in L’Ambiance.  The other night I went out to water “our” my neighbor’s and my herbs only to see a visitor in the chives!

Mr Frog and the chives

I was so surprised to see a frog that large, that I almost dropped the watering can!

Our LAmbiance Board of Directors is discussing when and which building the roof replacement will start.  They have talked about starting at the 2400 building and working around the subdivision beginning with the coach homes. The Directors thought that starting out in the coach residences would cause less disruption to the people renting in the garden units.

I hope you are enjoying the holidays.

If you have thought of making a move in 2014, please give me a call. I have a list of potential buyers for L’Ambiance.
