Post #1 of 4
We spent this week bashing down walls, ripping out doors and windows, and generally making a hell of a mess out of the Valdepeñas family home. Sr Valdepeñas watched and laughed a lot. La Señora refused to come look.
We did demolition Monday - Thursday. On Friday we went back to Las Casas (the original project) to do some odds and ends, and to try to get the water working for Rosa's house. We were not successful, but we did determine that the problem is a clog in the line coming down from the tank on the roof. Enrique will be back from Los Angeles this weekend, so he can deal with the problem on Monday.
Also on Friday we bought bricks, sand, cement and cal to begin re-construction on Monday. Meastro Manolo will be rejoining us on Monday.
Ruben and Nanny worked so hard this week that I gave them a holiday on Friday afternoon and Saturday. I was tired too.
