As you are aware, there have been some issues with de Luz, however things are moving slowly but surely forward. I wanted to post a few photos to bring you up to speed.
The Studio is so close to being finito, I can taste it. All the doors and windows are in. The glass is now being installed. Bathroom is almost complete. We are waiting for the shower and sink fixtures which are on back order. Should be in about a week from now. After that a small bit of tiling around the shower and magic will happen - completo.
Gas has been installed to the fireplace. An outdoor water outlet for the hose now exists on the terrace. So what's left? The remainder of the glass installation. Electrical throughout the studio. Terrace and stair railings. Painting of the studio and outside of the house. A small portion of the inside of the house needs repainting. I won't predict timing ... but soon ... very soon. Here's the latest photos.
|This wall looks out over the mountains and has access to the terrace.|
|Looking towards the access from the stairway. The door you see is access to the bathroom. The indentation in the wall to the left can be made into a closet.|
|Looking toward the stairway access. The large window at the end looks out over my driveway and the rooftops. I can't wait to sit at that big six foot table and spread out! Habibi is inviting me to play.|
|The bano. Fixtures and some tiling still to be installed.|
|As you might remember, I choose a few Day of the Dead, and Frida Khalo tiles. They are scattered here and there. Fun.|
|We are on the way downstairs now to see the newly cleaned driveway.|
|The huge sand pile, bags of cement, shovels, sifters, bricks, tiles and various bits and pieces were removed today. The wheelbarrow looks lonely. A serious cleaning and some paint will make a huge difference.|
