Well, as you all have probably guessed, we have moved into our house! Unfortunately, the house wasn’t ready for us, so we have been frantically working on it to make it livable. And, it hasn’t been easy! This is why we have been off-line for these past four weeks. The move was absolutely crazy…bordering on chaos. But, before we get into the big move, let’s get caught up first.
This slice of Cristobal wood is going to be hung on the wall above the kitchen bar. Eddie is preparing the hooks on the backside of the piece.
A piece of rebar and a notch make a place for hooks to hold up the wood piece.
Eddie uses a template to locate the hooks on the wall.
Workers hoist the wood up the scaffolding in preparation to hang it. The slice of Cristobal is very heavy.
Success! Now, down comes the scaffolding.
The entry gate is taking shape.
Manglillo wood is used for the gate.
Eddie is installing a water meter.
Eddie and Marvin are working on the water line from the storage tank to the house.
Eddie is installing the water booster pump and filtration system.
Rusty the cat is checking on the progress of the pool.
The pool is almost ready for water.
This is the plumbing for the pool pump and filter.
Eddie is installing supports for the big shelf above the bar. Again, Rusty is supervising to make sure all goes well.
A big slab of Cenizaro wood makes a beautiful shelf.
The carpentry crew are installing the interior wood doors.
So, you have seen that we have been very busy these past few weeks. Ellen has been cleaning like crazy. Dust is everywhere! It’s a never ending battle trying to keep up with it. The next installment will be about moving day. Stay tuned!
