Shade arbor on the roof -- almost done

We've had the concrete columns and beams up for months. Had to wait for the end of the rainy season to continue, in order to coordinate with Javier the painter and his crew. At last progress! Last week Leo and his boys put the iron beams and rebar in place. And today -- Sunday, no less -- there is a crew above us placing curved terracotta tejas in precise rows. Larry had wanted wooden vigas closely spaced to let in partial sun. But he never could find either the wood or the person to do it. We both agree now that the clay tile roof will work much better after all. Rain totally out -- as well as those calling cards that feathered creatures tend to leave behind.
