Days One Hundred Nine, 14 February, 2016Happy Valentine's Day.
What a way to spend the day - installing burglar bars. Still, this is one more thing that lets you know that the project is nearing the end.
Isaiel Pech, our Godson, lives with his wife, Amarilly and their son, Joshua, in Guinea Grass, a few miles south of Orange Walk. He has his workshop there as well.
Isaiel works as a custom art welder. He works for an art-welding firm in Orange Walk and also has a small art-welding business of his own. He has done all of our outdoor hose hangers. You can see pictures of them elsewhere on the blog. He also did some nesting, glass-topped tables for us.
One of the projects he's working on is a custom, curved stair railing, down in Cayo. That piece is costing around $13,000, just for the stair railing.
Our project was nowhere near that extravagant. Just some straight forward burglar bars, and a burglar bar screen door of our design.
Here's our burglar bar screen door waiting for installation.
