Construction has officially begun.
This is our 10 foot by 10 foot building to house all of the utilities. And ultimately it will be our most useful structure in the years to come. I liken this shed to a provincial park camping kiosk. We will have a shower and toilet accessible on one side, a solid wall down the middle and then a kitchenette accessible on the other side.
As this is Nicaragua where freezing temperatures and frost are not a concern we don't have to install a 4' foundation. We just pulled away all of the organic soft soil and will pour a concrete floor on the hardpacked earth. How easy.
The foundation floor has been poured, the walls have been built using the typical concrete Nica blocks and the final finish is parged cement or a stucco look. We did not do anything funky. The colour banding is simple the drying effect from the previous rainfall. The water has dried in the middle but the top and bottom of the structure are still wet.
