Teja Tile

Since returning from Texas I have been preparing for a trumpet and organ recital that I gave yesterday in San Miguel de Allende. I haven't had a lot of time to work out at the land, but I was able to get the roof up. I bought 400 teja tiles for the first round. Then 220 or so more to finish off the job. Putting up a teja tile roof is very simple. Once your big support beams are up, you put smaller boards across the big ones making a lattice. Then all you do is lay the teja on top. Beautiful and simple.
