Last Saturday for construction

Four more days starting Monday and then the Canadians will head back North  A tiny bit more than two months and they got a lot done. It was planned for a full three months but much confusion about Seguro and a crazy Presta Nombre that had to do things her way even if they made no sense. We're hoping next year in November things will be a lot smoother.

Building my house we had many Carne Asada parties and we figured their last Saturday was a good time to have one.  Good food, fun time and lots of beer.

Working on castillos

Four or five castillos up and should have most up this week. House owner wants to have a carne asada feed Saturday after work because next week is going to be a short one .... finishing up Thursday. Very productive 2 months.

Up to 2 meters

Oscar is a brick laying fool and Hugo is keeping up with him mixing mortar. They will be able to finish the walls to 2 meters all the way around and should have enough time to pour the castillos. I hope so anyway because next week is the last bit of work for the year.

Lots of brick in a week

All that brick is one week's work. They will finish the first one meter today and next week will start on the second meter. Then they put forms around the castillos (rebar) and pour them. Too bad they can't work for a few more months but the Canadian owners leave at the end of the month.

Dala work last week

Last week was only about week five and the dala was finished all the way around. This week it's cleanup and starting laying brick on the back wall. Muy bien trabajo and everybody is happy except for the Presta Nombre from HELL.

Four weeks on the foundation

Moving right along again. Filling up the spaces and ready for the section across the front. They waited on that so the backhoe could get in and out. About 3 more weeks to go until next year.
