The west side of the casita (facing San Luis village)…..
The ceilings are closed in now, ready for paint and light fixtures.
The kitchen area, beginnings of the countertop….
The living room area……
In these shots you can see the ceiling and roof rafters going in. The fellow in the last photo with the white shirt is my accountant, Sr. Barrantes. Looks like the weather is still holding by the view in pic # 2. The floor gravel is in as well, and the floor should be poured soon.
New pics from April 21st. The septic system is in, and the men are installing the plumbing and electric. You can see the window sill details on the front of the casita.
Here are a few more pics of the progression. Thanks again to Yorleni for her time and efforts. Still sunny and pleasant in Tronadora as the wet season looms ahead.
Ask for more pics and……voila! From the other side of the casita. The photo with the wooden bench depicts the kitchen/sala area which looks into the forest and further into the hills beyond. There will be a covered verandah on this side as well as on the front facing the road.
April 2nd……. More and more cement work accomplished this week. A few minor “tweaks” to be made regarding windows, but all in all shaping up to plans. It’s hard to judge the scale from the pics as they turn out somewhat compressed when uploaded to the blog. I don’t know how to rectify this yet. Next week should produce some photos from the other sides of the casita.
Today, the builder staked the location of the casita, and construction is set to begin on Monday morning. The weather is awesome these last few days, and it will be hard to leave the heat. Spent most of the day getting accounts set up at the bank, (hours of paperwork….really). Tomorrow, plan to explore Betsys farm and forest behind my place, and then spend some time with her and David in the afternoon for some brown pops.
Saw some toucans yesterday in the trees at the front of this casita, very colourful birds with unique flight habits.
