Weather Proof!

Snow! Snow! Snow! Crappy weather and chores slowed me down a bit lately. I did get the plywood sheathing painted with two coats of weather proofing stain; regular price $179 , purchased for $20 (oops paint) at HD. Because mold and mildew is a problem in tropical climates like Sayulita, we need to take extra precautions to assure this thing is water tight. 

All the panels we double coated on all sides. Not fun and time consuming but will make a difference in longevity and comfort of the house. 

Also, I found a few insperational images while waiting out the snow inside. 
Love this tiny kitchen with a top that folds down when not in use. 

This kitchen design is a perfect example of just how simple things should be. Too many gadgets = too many things to keep clean. Most of the cooking will be done outside on the BBQ anyway. 

Great example of using 1x1's as siding and security.
