What we did on our summer vacation
With the stone cleaned and exterior pointed it was time to work on the interior. With the invaluable help of V´s family, we managed about 80 meters in 12 days, and we´re knackered.
Of course it wasn´t all work. V´s brother cooked churrasco, with predictable results.
We´re particularly pleased with the windows.
Had two weeks of absolutely lovely weather, sunny and dry and cool nights perfect for sleeping. Discovered a new place for a 9€ menu of traditional, filling, Galician grub.
And the outside of the house looks good too, except for the weeds.
We also finally met and exchanged phone numbers with the neighbor, whose 78 year old father was up on a ladder doing roof work. Good to have someone in the area keep an eye on the place.
Unfortunately, the builder is booked solid until October, so finishing the repointing and interior plaster work will have to wait. We´re now looking for interior doors online to be able to finish the door openings in time for plaster.
Any one have thoughts on cement v.s. gypsum plaster?
