we are finishing up the walls of two rooms of the four and
putting up half walls of the last two. The half walls you
see are one meter and they stop there so as to not put too much
weight on the wet mortar
foto shows how the wooden forms are held in place for the
castillos. They push a stick through the wet mortar as
brick (rather than drilling holes later) and use wire to attach
the boards. The brick and smaller board make a lever to
hold the forms close.
foto is how one of the neighbors brings out water from his place
because the street water has been shut off for two days.
Like siphoning gas out of a car, we suck on the hose and get 55
gallons mas o menos.
