we got steel.........

monday tuesday

bring on the bunker bustes...we are ready. we have been tying steel all week with the concrete guys and we got some serious steel action going on. guys are becoming masters with the GONCHO.

hopefully tomorrow we can pour...unless the pinche lluvia shows up again.

kids showed up for a random surprise inspection...they were tough...did not like our design so they began building their own house.

can you dig it?

working hard.....

rain let up just long enough to get the finish grade cut and the void boxes and steel delivered. hopefully on monday the conrete guys will make it out to get this baby rolling.
now that eiji has his visa.....i guess he figures he can start working like an american.

day dreaming

So since construction's slow, I've been dreaming about how the house will look on the inside. This is the inspiration for the Master Bath. Who knows what it'll look like when you take certain things into consideration.. say, budget.

masseranduba lav

eiji built the slab from scraps and tomas bustos hand carved the bowl .... just need to sand and seal....any suggestions on sealer?

in the shop....

with all the rain.....not much we can do so we took it to the shop. eiji has been building a fullscale mock-up window frame. just need to add the stops, grind away, and possibly send to powder coat. we'll putty glaze the glass in place......much later.
