tile by tile and day by day
Thursday, May 8
DONE! Floor is wonderful. Extra touches impressive.
Hard to clean, clean, clean and keep dust out of the pool so that will right itself in time. Victor's wife and her sister have been hard at it for days, sweeping thrice, mopping thrice, etc. etc. etc.
Furniture is back in place. Library is back together. [ even Margy can reach the top shelf ! ]
Saturday, May 3
Sorry, no new pictures today. No working batteries in my camera!
In any case, they are sweeping and mopping the main floor. That's a good sign!
Most of the large expanses and individual rooms are complete and they have installed the back splash (or whatever it is called). Some remains to be grouted.
Poor Rocio is going to have one big job ahead of her, dusting and cleaning all of the furniture etc. Eventually, I'll get all the books back in the library.

One more week to go. Grouting near the front entrance is almost complete. Obviously, no walking allowed! Going around the back of the building.
The stack of tiles and cement has dwindled to the point of now laying tiles in this area.
Hard to imagine that it might be done by Saturday but miracles do happen!
Thursday, April 24
Still working on laying tile but the grouting has begun! Here's the wet look and, after drying and cleaning, the finished product (men's bathroom).

Lots of progress. Also, pool is being cleaned and will be ready for use on Thursday.
Saturday, April 19
A short day today. But still more progress!
Hard to keep the dust out of the pool so it's looking a little murky. But it's just dust and that never hurt a good cool dip.
Thursday, April 17
Great progress in 4 days.
No work tomorrow Good Friday. Crew will be back to work on Saturday and Monday.
Wednesday, April 16
Men's bathroom finished. Moving on to stage and into board room.
Tiles laid in main hall and bathroom await grouting.
Library bookcases removed and back walls repaired and painted.
Tuesday, April 15
Day 2. Progress in the main room and into the men's bathroom.
Monday, April 14
'Under construction' sign is posted at the door.
The tiles and materials have arrived and been moved to the west end of the club house.
Blue string is tied down. Notice that there is a green chair with a caution note on it not to step near the blue string.
[ Hopefully, either the camera or the photographer will perform better tomorrow. ]
Yes, that's right... check back every day.
