Fantastic photos! Thanks for sharing these... The construction is really coming along now. I'm looking forward to getting a first hand look when we are there in August.

If you look closely at the 6th photo in this article, you'll notice some detailed bric brac around the large windows for the Grand Villas.

They are still working at ground level on the two cupolas that will be placed on the roof. You can see one of the cupolas in the second photo and in the last photo. Here is a drawing of VGF that shows how the cupolas will be placed on the roof:

I was hoping it would happen during our stay at BLT last week, but it didn't happen. Hopefully someone will catch the event so we can all see it.
