Going up!

More progress. Adding the 50cm railing to the rooftop patio. And, making windows from scratch using native trees.

In real life

I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Sayulita and Puerto Vallarta. A little stressful. I wasn't sure if the camper, which is already sold, would fit out of the gate now that the house is built. It squeaked past the gate with only a couple inches to spare. Next step, getting it to the gas station where it could be towed. It was running pretty good considering but, the brakes were not work much at all. I drove slowly to the gas station and left it in the faithful hands of the new owner. Done deal.

Also met with the builder to ensure that everything is moving along as scheduled. And it was. The guys are making great progress! They decided to make the interior ceilings 10 feet tall which made a big difference in how it feels inside. Although the house is small, it feels much bigger. Still along way to go, but most of the big stuff is complete. On to the details.

I was hoping that we would have an "ocean view" from the roof top but it looks like we'll need to go up another story.

Ended the trip with this...
