Compost, Paint, Carving, Tile, Shower Shelf,

Day Eighty-Six and Eighty-Seven, 20 - 21 January, 2016

 I came back from walking the girls to find Carlos already hard at it. He was carving out a bowl in the large rock I had placed in the center of the cemetery ring. Here, he has already got the plant inserted, and has started adding compost to the rest of the ring.

 Mondays and Wednesdays always start early when Carlos is on the job. He's adding more compost to the cemetery ring.

He's not the only one who starts early. Carl's crew is on the job too with Errol edging the wall paint against the ceiling of the Bedroom.

Tile work is continuing to progress. Here the living room and office, in the background, are almost done, as far as tiling. Of course, the grouting has yet to be done.

Just as tile has been making its way into the dining room, so it is with the bedroom.
Tile Has Made It Into the Bedroom


Errol is working hard to get the painting finished. It seems, for whatever reason, that the concrete is thirsty and is absorbing enough paint that a second and third coat is often necessary.

I mentioned the tiling going on in the dining room and here's the proof. Omar is going full-steam ahead.

Tiling in the west walkway is done. It's just waiting for the grout to be applied.

I'm guessing, but I think that the tile will be moving into the bathroom in the morning. the bath will have the same tile as the walkways.
From the Bathroom Into the Bedroom
If you look close, down toward the bottom, and just off-center, you'll be able to make out the markings for Dianna's shaving bench which will be added to the shower.
