I have decided to add on to the house in Mexico and the work has begun. I want a room to use for a living room and to be large enough to invite friends over. I also want a fireplace. At first I was just going to build a walled patio but then I thought about it and went for the room addition. The grey water tank had to be move so that took time and labor. The ditches for the footings have been dug and the cement, block and rebar have been delivered. next week the footings get poured and the beginning of laying up the block begins. It is getting exciting seeing a plan come together.
Here are some photos of how it looks at this stage.
