Construction Update - Bodega
We've hired a crew of local workers, and so, as you can see in the photo above, the masonry work on the bodega/warehouse is proceeding quickly. This picture was actually taken a few days ago . . . the walls are much more complete now than they show in the photo.
We have also purchased the lumber for the roofs. Purchasing lumber around here starts with making a deal . . . then the trees are cut, and the process of turning raw wood into usable lumber begins. Needless to say, this isn't quite as fast as running to Home Depot! But, our lumber is now cut, and is in the process of drying. Just a few more weeks, and we should be starting to see roofs on the bodega and the team house.
