La Casa

7:10am shot from Tolt Hill
It is freezing cold here, but the sunrise can't be beat......
Mount Si....looks more like a warm weather sunrise, but everything outside is frozen hard.
This is Calle Durango....our street in Mexico...looking down the hill to town. #9 is on the right.
flowers across the street
mountains across the street
across and up the street

inside the yard looking at the propane tank, everything runs on propane. one day we saw a young man riding his bike and he was juggling his big propane tank across the handlebars of the bike. the street is right behind.
pictures are just a little out of order. we are going into the yard at #9
okay, now we are back looking at the yard and gate before we go in....the yard is huge here..
okay, below we are back outside looking at the mountains across the street. i worked hard to get my photos organized in a sequence, obviously I am a failure at that.....
still looking across the street, well at least it's pretty

okay, this tree is in the backyard, pretty bouganvilla up there in the tree
yea, a shot of the house and yard there are lots of lime trees, all kinds of bushes and trees that i will have to learn about, a big palm tree and thousands of fire ants. ....
a tree in the backyard
more yard and the small shed on the right
side of the casa

trying to get into the casa, this is one of the livable rooms where we will live while we work on the casa
inside the casa, to the left is the yard
below i am standing in the room where the above photo was taken, the livable rooms are to the left and the yard is to the right.....
the casa, livable rooms to the right
the yard is big enough to put in a soccer field.

looking out through one of the windows to the street outside
another view from one of the windows, to the mountains
ooh, bad bathroom, just had to show this photo
looking into the kitchen
this photo shows the shed out in the yard

back near the funky swirly brick room
funky swirly brick will come down
for those of you still wondering if there is electricity, note the hanging light fixture. I'm sure we will get a new one.
bedroom with aluminum foil covered windows. everything will be removed before we get there in march, we will all be removed....
ooh, another bad bath photo of a second bathroom.

our new kitchen
fireplace in our new kitchen and kitchen sink
storage room with fridge and bricked in wall
funky swirly brick room is in the photo below
one livable room

aren't you excited now that you have seen the casa? we cannot wait to get back down there and get started. we have ordered a spanish colonial architectural book and the plan is to be as true to the local style of architecture as possible while keeping the structure that is there now intact.
we just have a little work to do......................
