The last of the moulding. Not much to show, but a lot in the works.

Not much visible progress to report today, but a lot of stuff in the works. That up there is the tangible result from Tony and Reynaldo, the last of the mouldings; they'll only be able to put one of them up for now, though. The other two have to wait until 1) Ice gets here and finishes the texturing on the back wall of the stairwell, which will likely be next week; and 2) I then get it painted, which involves more episodes of me hanging off a ladder on top of a scaffold.

Miguel apparently works another job most weekdays, so he and Sherm will probably not be back until the end of the week to finish off the interior plaster. But we've got the final round of pigment ready to go, and they'll be able to pick up whatever else they might need in the way of Structo and Red-Top.

Tomorrow, Victor comes to start the work of finishing up the wiring. We'll also be calling to order the stucco for the color coat of the exterior plaster, which is slated to begin on July 7th, weather permitting. I also have to place a few online orders for materials, we need to get over to Olguin's (the local sawmill) to figure out which posts we need for the decking, and very soon we'll be heading to Lowe's and Home Depot to pick up tile for the downstairs and wood for the upstairs. There's a lot more to do, too, but I'm wiped and can't think of what it is right now.

Tomorrow, I should have more substantive info, and possibly better images, too. For now, I have to finish up here and get to work plotting out the order of the materials orders.

It's a nice problem to have.

Many thanks and much to love everyone for all your help getting us to this point.
