Agatha Royer is the owner of a double-gable roofed ti kai on L’Allay, the main street and cultural spine of Grand Bay. The house was built by her grandfather, a builder and woodworker who also ran a nearby estate. She left Grand Bay aged 22 to get married and live in Martinique, but visits her old home regularly – staying in the basement while her tenants rent upstairs, waiting for their own hurricane-damaged home to be repaired.
Agatha, who was raised in the house by her aunt and grandmother, calls her ti kai ‘a monument’ that survived David and Maria unscathed.
