Time, Tide and Taxes are among the few certainties in life. In Palm Beach you can add one more– the end of condo renovation season.
A remnant of the days when the town assumed everyone headed north for the summer months, Palm Beach condo boards only allow construction from May 1st through October 31st, and Damocles' Sword ain't got nothing on the finality of that end date. As a consequence, come May 1st, the race is on and woe to the condo owner who hasn't lined up his appliance deliveries or has a change-order habit he just can't quit.
There are plenty of single family home renovations going on simultaneously, too. Luckily, house owners don't have to deal with a looming cut-off date, but they do need to compete for the affection of every electrician, plumber and mason in Palm Beach. And as for their GC's? They've got condos to finish! Layer in landscape crews frantic to complete their planting for "the season" and you can imagine what the 8am lineup looks like at the island's bridges.
In short, pretty much everyone is now running flat out, including us. The photos above and below are our from own little South End condo redo.
Just 27 days til our Halloween "hammers down." Please, pray for us 🙏🏻
