Bottles on the rebar Quiz

I've heard tons of stories of why the bottles are placed on top of rebar on the roofs in Mexico. My builder just gave me the only answer that makes any sense to me. No it is not to keep them dry and it's not to bring attention that the house is unfinished. You guys get to make a guess or two ....

No more quesses - OK

Rebar sticking out of the roof makes a great lightning rod .... and either glass or plastic will act as insulators

Space Needle in Melaque?

If you really need to see the ocean but build on the other side of the highway in Melaque ... this is what you are forced to do. I just wonder after a few trips up those stairs ... will it continue to be used. Then again, they may put a beacon in it and the Bahia de Navidad will have it's first lighthouse.

¡Vota Obama!

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
