The trusses, ceiling joists, etc. are up!!! Hooray!! Hurrah!!!
MM calls this wood San Juan Chin. It is a very hard, dense wood that termites do not attack. That is very important here in the tropics. Termites can destroy a property in a very short time-space. Once this wood dries you cannot nail it without drilling a hole first.
This is my new roof, before. The after pictures will come next week. My BIL is going to try to come next week and bring some helpers. If they come it will certainly speed things up
These are my door and window frames, and even my doors. Part of this may even become part of the ceiling. The wood is Rosita. It has a beautiful grain. It is another dense, heavy hardwood. Once you get a nail into it, you can't take it back out. It is also too hard for termites to chew.
This house is truly a house built out of love. To me, not even the Taj Mahal is more beautiful. The best part is that when it is finished, the house is paid for. It cannot be foreclosed on. It cannot be repossessed. It is ours. Thank you, Macho Man.
We are blessed.
