New project in Puerto Rico

After a long hiatus welcoming a new member to our family, I finally got started on a new project in Puerto Rico this week.Its a house from 1970 built by a family that used to build warehouses. This house is built of the same concrete modules as a warehouse and is structurally very impressive. Virtually nothing has been done to the house since it was built. Renovation is just started and the first issues we had to address were termites of the subterranean kind. They were everywhere. They nest underground and make their way into the structure trough cracks in the foundation or gas in the window frames etc. Although the structure itself was fine they found plenty of food inside in the form of wooden floors, cabinets etc. We also had to get an abatement team in to remove asbestos and lead containing tile.
