14 July 2010

Things seem to be very quiet out at the property. I think there are only about 10 workers on site; quite a difference from when there were 30+! Ramon and another worker were laying out the steps on the west side going from the pool level up to the bungalows.

Jose and Chino were both still in the pool, laying tile on the floor. I would say they have about 2/3 of the pool tiled. I fugured there were about 186 square meters of surface area in the pool that needed to be tiled. The tiles come in 12" by 12" arrays; approximately 9+ to the meter. That's a lot of tiles! And not only do they have to lay the tile, but they have to come back over it and grout it.

Other workers were finishing the walls in the third bungalow. And still others were digging the drain field for the septic system.

Koki should arrive tomorrow with the truck which should have all of the supplies needed to finish construction! This will include the granite for the kitchen counter as well as the fixtures for the bungalows. It's exciting to think we are this close to the end; but when I look at the house, there is still sooooo much left to do!! Here's to hoping the deadline isn't just hopeful thinking!

Doug's dad is doing very well. He is alert, communicating and beginning to gain his strength back. He has been moved out of ICU and will continue to receive mental and physical therapy.
