Almost done!

Friday we did the final clean up about 5 times!!  The gravel truck came at 8:00AM.

Grava is not cheap, 1500 pesos for a half load. There goes the plant budget!

We had the gravel dumped in various locations to make the spreading easier. So nice to have fresh clean pea gravel everywhere plus it will help keep the ants under control.

Only in Mexico would the delivery truck go over 'the road' with a flat tire!

We hired this guy to add steel supports at each of the 5 concrete posts. A steel rod goes thru the cement and is bolted to the steel rod hanging over the wooden main beam.

The roof is now complete. Just to be extra cautious Colin asked for brace supports on the two wooden posts. We want this thing to last for a very long time.

We kept the girls inside for part of the day due to all the comings and goings. They really really wanted to be out there.

Caeli got insect bites between her toes and would not stop licking the area so I put some salve on and tiny socks to allow the sores to heal.

While the workers worked Colin washed the last side of the RV so it would be clean for the new site. I decided to get busy and made salmon pate, muffins and sugar syrup for the hummingbirds.

Looks great, time to move I think!
