Front Wall Project – Update 2

Well the wall is coming along nicely.
Here are the daily update shots – I try to take a shot each day just before or as the workers leave, and from the same spot across the street.

It’s getting harder to notice the changes like when the wall was actually being constructed. Now it’s more detail work, and they are putting drains around the interior opening to divert the rain to tubes that will run down through the wall and exit onto our cement pads to then run out to the street. The raised trim around the doors was not something we asked for, we planned to just paint a faux trim strip. But with workers – sometimes they just do what they want.

I must say I am getting tired of the dust and debris. And just of having workers here all the time. We come and go during the day, sometimes singly or together; but you just can’t feel comfy lying sunning in the pool when there are workers on your roof. Oh the stress of retirement!

    Well INAH noted on our permit that we have to use a pastel color, and no more than 3 colors total.We have a goldish color that was to be the front of the house, with the burgundy/rasberry trim that is visible in early photos at the roof line. We may keep that color for the inside courtyard/parking area and select something different for the outside.Any suggestions, 70’s turquoise, pepto bismol pink, lime sherbert green???Debi

    I wouldn’t recognize it either. I like it a lot, a whole different look but nicer. I can’t wait to see it painted.

  3. Wow, I don’t even recognize your house anymore. What colour are you painting it? The plant is thriving.regards,Theresa
