Life in a Mexican seaside village definitely has it's perks. While our friends in Vancouver are freezing, we are enjoying idyllic weather and lots of sun. But alas all that sun and sand can wreak havoc on building materials and after 10 years our steel garage doors were beyond repair. It's not like we can just run to Home Depot and buy new doors. No, everything is custom-made here in Melaque. We bought a load of galvanized tubing in Guadalajara and asked our friend Don Pancho to come for a visit with his family and build us a new set of doors.
Four days later, a lot of grinding and welding, voila, a new set of doors.
