Within less than 2 weeks Edgar’s team was able to pile up all the sandbags again and finish the wall structure. The house looks again stunning and regained the majestic aspect in the middle of the hillside of arid Baja California Sur with its splendid view on the sea of cortés.
To strengthen the wall laterally and for a better adherence of the plaster, we mounted some iron wire on the inside and outside of the wall. The sandbags turned into the ham of the sandwich wall ;).
With pieces of wire running between the sandbags we tightened the inside and outside wire grid together. The wire grid also helps to keep the electric conduits in place before applying the mortar for the wall finishing.
