A post on Facebook showed up today and my head began to remember my days in Uruguay. So I thought to post some work I did there with my one and only. We traveled there in 2000 to check it out, as our friends from various Embassies in Lisbon, told us to go. I wanted to first stay in Buenos Aires, as I liked the big city feel of it. But we fell in love with Montevideo and its people.
Here are some images of what was done during our time there.
|building before renovation, one of four buildings we worked on|
|building after renovation, I studied old photos and old plans to do a faux front..each front surface has only a 2-3 cm. difference to the surface next to it. I worked on the outside and hubby worked on the inside.|
|Before old corner building in the old part of town|
|After we renovated, through lots of city paperwork. We had to add steel beams to the first floor ceiling.|
