Well .. the end is here. The crew will be finished this week with their part. The casa is finished on the exterior. So now it is up to us to finish the interior.It took us 3 months longer than expected, but when you consider that everything is done by hand, we are okay with that.
Budget wise, it was $45.00 usd a SQ foot and we got many extras that we were not expecting. For that price they included a lower concrete patio and a concrete ramp to the garage and stairs. We did have them paint the three tall sides for us, and all Ismael wanted for this, was a trade of some items that cost about $250.00.
So what we learned, is to be patient. Because everything is done by hand it takes longer and yes you can build in Mexico without having to be on site the whole time.
