When we came to this island for a vacation in 1970 and immediately feel in love with the beauty of both the island and the people. Over a 15 year period, we built this house ourselves, with the help of some local Cat Islanders. We were lucky enough to be able to collect the beautiful stone indigenous to the island and use it as the structure of our home. We've tried to think of every little detail and have proudly maintained our home in excellent condition. We are happy to share it with others who also appreciate the beauty of the island and its people. Ginny and Richie Henn
