Glad to hear you're feeling better, David K., too bad you were out of it with a virus but appears it passed by quickly. You'll have to let the rest of us in on where you find the marine varnish in these parts. I'm sure you have plenty more construction tips to share and hope we can pick your brain for some of that on this board. Big welcome and glad you got registered in OK.
Thanks, Dawg. I'm just getting started with the new casita so will be tied-up with it for awhile yet. It has a large garden and Tere wants to use some ideas she was inspired with after visiting your garden and home. We have a lot of modernizing to do on the house, while keeping it somnewhat rustic and traditional in appearance.
A new baño and washroom with a portales-like patio is going in alongside the garden. The house didn't have an aljibe, which is something we feel is necessary and are also putting in and that patio will be built over it. Also we want a traditional round oven that will use both gas and leña for baking pan and pizzas. It will be located at the end of the patio so it can provide warmth in these cold months, a necessary double-purpose on my mind at this time.
Careful on the road to Chiapas, Dawg. Stay safe. That new Arco-Norte highway makes the trip more pleasant and much quicker, I'm sure.
