Up bright and early this morning (well it was dark actually) on the veranda with my mug of coffee and the iPad catching up with what is going on in the world.
First off was checking my In Box where I was pleasantly surprised to find an application for a job on our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize. It was from our great nephew Cody who, having seen his photo in a previous edition quite likes the idea of coming out here to start his working life.
“I’m your man”. Cody tooled up and ready for action!
Also in the In Box were some emails from Daniel Camal, our building contractor, with some photographs of the frames for some of the vanity units his team are making based on the designs that Rose supplied a few days ago.
For the bathroom for the smaller of the two bedrooms in the Ground Floor self-contained apartment.
And for the bathroom for the ‘master bedroom’ on the Ground Floor.
Rose and I spent some time drawing up a list of appliances (refrigerator, oven, microwave, washer, dryer) that I will ask Benny’s to provide prices for. When we have received these I can carry out a cost comparison versus buying them in the States and having them shipped to Ambergris Caye.
By the time we had finished this it was time for a late lunch after which we set off to visit our build in Ambergris Caye, Belize and we got there around 2.45 pm and went straight to the self-contained apartment on the Ground Floor where we found that they had started creating the base for the shower for the ‘master bedroom’.
And in the bedroom itself Sam and Eduardo were applying the finishing coat of cement for where the built in wardrobe will go.
Up the First Floor the electrician assisted by Rafael (aka The Frog) had started the wiring for the lighting and power points.

And the power points for the dining room area.
At the front of the house Martin and Nicholas were focusing on applying the finishing coat of cement for the bedroom (Rose’s handicraft room).
Wall leading to the en-suite bathroom finished.
Wall where the built in wardrobe will go.
And they then started on the final wall in the room.
Dampen the wall first.
As we made our way to the scaffold (Porfelio had arranged for it to be reassembled in be living room area so that Rose can access the Second Floor) we saw that Edson was in the powder room applying the finishing coat.
Last wall to go.
Once up on the Second Floor we saw that they had struck the lines for laying the finishing coat for the floors.
Lines struck in the bedroom.
A close up.
In my bathroom they had applied the finishing coat for where the toilet will go and had finished the shelves in the recess.
And had had finished the shelf in my shower are
The walls for the walk-in closet (leading in to my bathroom) had also been finished.

Right side leading in to the bathroom.
And the walls around where the toilet will go had also been finished.
