The big event this week which took all week to do was the stairway and landing to the third floor terrace. The base for all of it is in place now. It took lots of measuring and remeasuring by Milo and his crew. The next step was cutting and bending the rebar to hold it in place. I don't see how it could fail with all the rebar that was used.
We still do not have a roof over this stairway...just a tarp held down with some boards. Since this is the dry season, we haven't had rain to deal with while we have this opening from the first floor all the way to the new terrace. However, one night this week we thought we might get rain. A sudden wind came up and the tarp was whipping in the wind. It happened so quickly and was so noisy, I thought it was a major truck breakdown in the street beside the house. But, thank goodness, no rain
The roof was poured two weeks ago on Friday so almost all of the forms were taken down and stacked in the new room.
And while all of these things were going on this week, they also plastered the new areas, the outside wall and the inside of the terrace walls. Still have the plaster on the inside to do.
Progressing right along.....
