Belated June-December 2009 House Addition Process Begun Part 2...

I am used to watching wooden houses being constructed. It has certainly been a very different experience watching a cement and metal house go up... MUCH LONGER process. Sorry the pictures are a bit messy. With so many it was harder to organize them nicely. I tried and messed things up. So, even though it is not perfect, you get to see the pictures. :-)

Funny things you find in the rubble... Is not any of ours...










































Wow, Papà, I never noticed that you had so many spots...






I am okay, Papà. What's up with you? (Anthony and Dario)












By the way, never add oil to a running jackhammer... ;-)
