Great Furniture!

We have been buying furniture for the last two weeks. We are attempting to fully furnish our first story apartment, and buy only what we really need for our personal second and third floors.

We have found a number of fabulous pieces, and several have been finds. A wonderful table from the hardware store across the street from TelMex. A great three piece set from Aliza on the way to Ixtapa.

The absolute BEST items have come from the woodworkers across the street from comercial! It turns out that there are at least 5 separate families, we happened to work with the second one in from the corner. We had many choices, loads of custom things done, chose the stains and finishes we wanted, and all with aged wood and termite treated. They delivered for a very fair price all the way to the top floor, and after the first load, we just set up days and times, they delivered, and we paid them on delivery!

We are finally showing our home in progress to friends (plan to move in this weekend) and everyone raves about the furniture. Not the house, sigh, but the beautiful wood furniture. We recommend them highly!

You understand that the "treatment" for termites is diesel fuel. Then you are bringing this into an enclosed living space. It is best to get wood that does not need "treatment"

I have had less than a superior experience with the people you describe, in particular quality is sketchy. Yes dirty oil, used motor oil mixed with Diesel is perhaps the only way to half treat the cheap pine wood they use from termites. I have had to retreat bed frames etc more than one time after finding termites move in up to a year after I thought I had fully treated the piece. I would use the pine furniture sold across from Commercial for a few years until I was able to slowly acquire better pieces. I am glad your experience has been better.

Possibly better because in Southern California we had at least two times a year that termites swarmed, and we learned to just live with it.

The furniture does not smell like oil or diesel fuel, simply stain and varnish.

Bugs, bugs, bugs. It's all part of the cycle. Are we fans? Depends on the bugs!

We loved the house,you have put a lot of energy into it.,not to mention what great shape you will be in after climbing all those stairs. Suggest a bench half way up. Take care of the bugs as they appear, enjoy your new abode, it's beautiful.

I ran past your place yesterday morning and was amazed by the streetside view of it! Am home now, but hope to see the both of you, the dogs and your house in it’s lived in glory next March. ¡Felicidades!
