The doors are on :)

Today the doors arrived and were installed they do look nice. Also the bathroom door was installed and it looks nice too. A little work was done on the bathroom tile now the tile man is working on the shower floor. Also the last load of gravel was delivered and I got the bill for the four dump truck loads of dirt and three dump truck loads of gravel. I don’t know if I got a good price or not the gravel is brought down from Mexicali 150 miles away so it isn’t cheap and the bill included the labor for spreading the gravel a man working all day with a shovel and wheel barrow for three or four days to spread the dirt compact it down and then spreading the gravel by hand as well. The bill was about $660. I also got the price for the new toilet and all the stuff inside it for $120 that’s about the same or a little less than in the states.

Tomorrow the tile man should be back working on the bathroom and hopefully the floor will be done completely tomorrow, but I’m not holding my breath. I sure would like to use my new shower.

I’m having a little bit of buyer’s remorse as I see the money going out faster and faster. I know I am almost at the end of this building stuff and soon I will be able to move into my new house, but still I wonder if I should have spent all that money. I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Here are some photos of the new exterior doors, I think they look nice the trim around the doors still has to be painted but that will only take an hour or so.
