Painting rebar is my game

Painting rebar is my latest activity after cleaning up when the new roof supports where taken down yesterday. I was amazed at how much stuff was left either on the floor or still embedded in the ceiling. Half the rebar still there will be cut off because it won't be used to continue building but the other half needs paint or it will rust quickly.

Then there's the sand ... and lots of it. This time we ordered clean sand for less work 'screening' the rocks out of it. Not as important with cement but stucco needs a uniformly fine sand.

Building a house in Melaque Mexico

It looks as if the building project is moving right along. I should stop by.

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.
