We saw Bill's lot

The last time we were in town Bill B kindly showed us around the development, including his lot.

Sacbe is fabulous. Given the housing market here, though, we won't be mobile any time soon.

Very nice Bill...my insistence was well worth it! Thanks, eh!

Albenil Nehemias is adding some beautiful details as always! Those dolphin door handles are awesome, not to mention the soap dish and towel hooks.

Keep 'em comin' Bill!

Ok, I can't take the pressure . . .

In this episode we begin by building columns made of rebar (steel rods), then insert the vertical water pipes and electrical conduit, surround them with wooden forms, and pour in a protective layer of cement.


Next we set up metal support structures covered by a plywood form to begin building the second floor.


Next we build the beams with rebar and connect them to the columns below.


We fill the non-structural space between beams with foam blocks for insulation and weight reduction. Then we insert the horizontal water pipes and electrical conduit.


Now, reasonably sure everything is in the right place, we cover the second floor with cement.


Then we do it again . . . twenty more columns and prepare for the third floor.


Here is a view from the garden. So far, so good, and it is pretty cool to see the design move from paper into 3D reality.


Last year my retirement money was in real estate investment trust funds. Now it is in something I think will be a little more solid and reliable.

Really interesting to watch the progress unfold.

The first pics with the palapa are the separate bodega and guest bathroom. The new ones are of the house (above) and restaurant (ground floor).
