The stuccoing has started

They did the upstairs laundry room in the last few days and today the stairs. To do the outside wall of the wash area they need three sets of "staging" (andamios) and we won't have those until next week. Stairs look nice but this is not the final coat. Finished will be much smoother.

We're now talking about cutting air vents in every room, size they should be, where located and what tools we will need. Need to do that before stucco and the stucco needs to be finished before the wiring, electrical fixtures installed and bathrooms are finished. I'm thinking of using a ventilation block (design that air passes thru) and mosquito net behind it.

Jimmy, Sandy and I are going to Home Depot in Colima this Sunday to look at doors, tools and block designs. The two of my interior doors are going to be wood and I want to have one on hand to make an exact fit.

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.
