1 Sept Tuesday - Large purchase at Maestro on 100 square meters of tile, tile cement, a dozen doors & door frames, plumbing fixtures, 7 toilets, 7 sinks and 5 electric showers. We got it all delivered and unloaded with Victor and William doing the work. Lily says when she was buying all this material, the aisle worker at Maestro asked her 'what are you building, a castle?' ;-)
Abel did not show up till later in day and he and his helper "Chato" (nickname means 'shorty' in Spanish) moved most of the materials to the 2nd and 3rd floors. William continued doing electrical work, while Victor resumed painting. Cost for this material ran S/. 9,500 (approximately $2,800).
2 Sept Wednesday - Bathroom tile placements actually got underway with a lot accomplished by Abel and Chato. William continued to work on the electrical, installing outlets and switches. Victor continued on painting of door and window frames. Lily returned to Maestro to get 35 more electrical plugs, more electric wires, many light fixtures, a circular saw for door installation work. This purchase was about S./2,500 ($760).
3 Sept. Thursday - Work fully underway on three fronts (Tile, Paint and Electrical)
