With the rainy season upon us, some of our proposed construction projects have to be put on hold.
On the other hand, my sister-in-law has started construction on her house across the street from us in La Yacata because building in the rainy season means you don’t have to buy any water for the cement mix. My husband, son, father-in-law and one of my brothers-in-law are working like a machine to get the foundation done. My sister-in-law is also out there every day after the tortillas have sold to bring nourishment and help out.
That’s not to say all construction on our house has ceased. Our little projects this month included the installation of a small window in the spare room and the front porch screen door.
The front of the animal side of our property was also patched with cement and the roof bit angled ready for tejas (roofing tiles).
I also found what I think might have been part of a gun cabinet at a junk store and lo and behold it’s just the thing for some kitchen shelves.
Next month’s projects may or may not include a banana tree, so stay tuned!
