Construction has started on the upstairs to our small store. It will be a bedroom with an air-con. This will give us more space for the store downstairs so we can add more items to the store. This week, the carpenters removed the ceiling and roof and have begun to build the walls.
It is the dry season now so hopefully we will have dry weather. They are using hollow block for the walls and we will have a nice wooden floor when the construction is complete. We also had to buy a water pump as the water pressure is very low.
We will be staying here for a while this summer to make sure the store in moving in the right direction. I will also be traveling around Mindoro as I explore the scuba diving around Puerto Galera and Sablayan.
