Rest after a productive week

A good week it has been, indeed! Photos taken today:

The outside stucco scratch coat is completed, including waterproofing of the parapets, etc. The vigas and portal wood works have been stained. Now the outside will cure and harden for a few weeks.

Exciting to have come this far!

The outside wall had been “insulated” on the inside and then stuccoed and it looked wrong, so we tore off the stucco and insulation and re-did it and now everyone is happy! We will build a hearth for the outside fireplace. When the walls are completed with color, we will pave the portal with bricks.

While the new concrete floor is curing I have been able to install the kitchen cabinets, which have been stored in one of our guest rooms. It was tricky and time consuming, but it worked out very well.

Ready for the stone countertop! On Monday the tile guy is going to start in the bathroom! And Oscar, Daniel and Rodrigo will start doing plaster on all the inside walls. Exciting times!
