Look at these walls!
Yesterday I visited our property, to see the progress. I was especially interested in seeing the security bars for the windows, and the finish on the interior walls.
I think the interior walls are quite lovely! We wanted the look of adobe, and I think it's a nice look.
Somehow, though, I managed to neglect to actually take a good picture of the window bars! So, you'll have to trust me that they look really good, considering that I'm not all that fond of the look of security bars. These bars are, however, a necessary evil here, and we worked hard to make them as non-objectionable (to us) as we possibly could. You'll barely see some of the bars in the pictures, but you need to see them from outside to get a good feel for them, and I've got no pictures of that - sorry.
This picture is the best I've got for now. I promise to try to do better next time!
The pictures below are of the interior of the bodega/warehouse. The wood on the floor is part of the roof structure - much of which was installed today. The large pieces of metal on top of the wood are the parts for the sliding metal door, which will be the loading door for the warehouse.
I love seeing things starting to come together like this!
