Boveda day 3

11AM - Bóveda in computer room
When I arrived at Pete's construction site today it was late morning. Pedro the bóveda maestro was just completing ceiling for Pete & Jimena's computer room. This room is much smaller than the kitchen that you read about yesterday. It only took Pedro four hours to complete this small bóveda.

Roof construction
In Mexico, roof construction is very different than most homes in the United States. As you may see in the pics below, the flat roof has a foundation of concrete blocks. The concrete blocks will be covered by a 5" concrete pad. This roof will last forever!
