Story of a window

This is what we started with, a typical Mexican window--small and high (and usually with drawn curtains).

Starting the process of opening it up--after pouring a reinforced concrete header beam, the albaniles cut through half the 16-inch thick adobe wall.

The opening's all the way through, awaiting finishing.

Plaster finishes the edges. Now we're awaiting the window frame. The inclined channel below the opening will house the drain from the sink.
