I separated finishing costs from shell costs. Unfortunately, I lost all data in my hard drive from a computer crash caused by low temporary voltage.
We are camping out in the house while we finish. No kitchen cabinets, maybe next week. Our kitchen sink sits on two cubetas, which our housekeeper empties daily (5 days of the week). We do have the electric meter installed now. Gates are being finished and retaining walls constructed to hold back the mountain, detras.
I still do not have internet and am working from internet cafes, whenever I have time to get to one.
The lot costs were correct, nearly $240,000 pesos total. The total house costs to date including lot, construction, and finishing are near $1,200,000 pesos. Losing my detailed spreadsheet was a real Bummer!
IMSS sent out someone to measure the house. It´s bigger than the architect stated. It is 240 sq. meters. He was trying to save money. I will owe $13,000 pesos more. My accountant is negoyiating still.
