The house of Tzab Kan Nah was built firstly as a massage room but because people loved the first house I built and the only one at the time, I thought I would change it to a rental unit.Also with Hermalinda, the lady that used to do massages, having had a slight stroke,she was no longer available to do massages. This was also another push to revamp the massage room.
I left the inside walls as they were. Mud on the inside as well as the outside.Put in the bathroom to which I tiled.It surficed for the time being but then as this place got more popular I had to concentrate on building more Maya casita to rent.
Last week finally came the time to re-do the interior. Hilario my builder,did a great job of cementing the walls . It really does look much better and much easier to keep clean……….no dry mud chipping of the wall.Then I looked at my job in the bathroom and said, you know what; Hilario…. I think we have time to re-do the bathroom before the next guests come along….. so he chipped away at the tiles on the bathroom floor ready to re-do the tiling.
Like always seem to happen one never seems to get just the exact tiles one in looking for in the nearby Ticul… well I thought I do need to buy things for the restauarant so I will combine tile shopping and grocery shopping at the same time. I didnt really need much tiling but I knew just what I wanted.
Hilario re-set the river stones as requested and all seemed to come together really well.
ahhh ahhh! not only does Hilario know construction he also knows how to do paint jobs………and clean!!!!….Great! that lets me off from doing it and I can concentrate on other things.
All this done then came the last touches . New homemade cover for the top spread(again another buy in Merida just not possible around here) then the mosquito netting around the bed .We put runners on the bottom of the door to help keep out pesky things (not that I have many but it makes the guesties feel more comfortable)and nestleed mosquito netting between the walls and the palapa roof. Added a coffee/tea machine for those early rises and now all looks clean, fresh and lovely..
I am only missing one thing at the moment and that is a painting on the wall.As soon as I have finished and its framed it will be there!
