  1. If you are registered in SAT, they have the "Buzón Tributario" which is basically setting up an online account with them through which they will send you information and requests dealing with your taxes, filings etc... in an official way instead of having to do everything personally at their offices or waiting for the SAT guy to come to your address.
  2. Try at Oxxo or Walmart, they have cheap phones with limited functions but some might be what you are looking for.
  3. I think you might be refering to a "flota" usually for plaster finishes though, not for paint.
  4. You could remove the tinaco and install an hidroneumatico (a pressure system that takes the water directly from the water deposit) that way no tinaco is needed and the system pressure is constant.
  5. I agree, easier to put it underground. Two tinacos might be too much weight.
  6. I received treatment in that hospital about 5 years ago. Was good service but my doctor was Ricardo Navarro also a Gastro at that hospital.
  7. Good luck!! Upload pictures when finished!!!
  8. Can the van come back filled with Golden Pride #7 Carne Adovada burritos? I miss those 😁.
  9. Marlex 33 3832 6264 Medical Stock 3315891056 They sell medical mesh and different supplies for hernias and surgery. They are in Guadalajara, dont really know the brands they carry.
  10. Cabrera y asociados, are specialist contractors on rammed earth. Specially with rammed earth you will need a contractor with experience and the full equipment to build it, otherwise it can become a serious risk on the quality and work not being done efficiently. They are in Mexico City but they have done work in Guadalajara and that house in Chapala. There is also the alternative of using pressed earth block, similar passive solar qualities to rammed earth not as stunning appearance though. Strawbale is not very common, I would not recommend it lakeside. Adobe, cob and superadobe are also possibilities if you are interested in alternative construction methods.
  11. I would suggest breaking down the quote into smaller chunks that allow you to see progress and relate it to money. 1/3 is still quite some money since it will be 2 o 3 months of work before they catch up. It also depends on the type of arrangement fixed price, or cost administration.
  12. I would be a bit more concerned of driving to Santa Clara del Cobre and Zirahuen than to Patzcuaro. You license plate might make the car attractive. If you do follow the only advice I could give is: drive on toll roads if possible, don't drive at night and try to visit on dates where there might be some tourism moving around so the roads are not as empty, especially the Santa Clara and Zirahuen part.
  13. I think I understand you problem. If you send me some pictures and just let me know which way is north (to know the sun path to avoid the hot inferno you fear by enclosing) in a small sketch I'm sure I can answer you questions.
  14. I have used Hebel which is very similar, different brand. It is a great building system, cleaner and faster than traditional brick or block. It ends up being a little more expensive but it does provide a better indoor quality due to its thermal and acoustic (very often under valued) properties.
  15. You can do that at Office Depot, there is one in front of El Palomar, Lopez Mateos entrance to Guadalajara.
  16. I did this a few years ago. I stopped at Ciudad Camargo, Hotel Santa Fe. I liked it because they have a parking lot with security and cameras, especially useful if you have a loaded car and dont want to waste time unloading and loading again in the morning.
  17. I've had experience doing this here in Mexico. Working both with Cemex and Cruz Azul. Cemex is a bit more expensive, I have used othee companies but mostly for low resistance not for structural elements (Forza and Moctezuma) . If you still want to test every single truck it might be cheaper to hire CIDI or some other lab to take the samples and do the testing. My own experience using lab testing is a vast majority of the supplied concrete exceeds resistance by a considerable amount.
  18. Comex sells gold paint with its Comex 100 line. Not sure if they have it in every store, I've bought it in Guadalajara. But I'm pretty sure they could order it for you.
  19. Unless you are pouring a very special type of concrete I agree with the suggestions of doing it on site. It will cost pretty much the same maybe even a little less expensive, it might take a little more time. But you could also add the benefit of providing more work to local workers and not to a machine.
  20. You can call the concrete plant yourself and ask for the concrete with the desired resistance and slump. They will mix it up and you can have them take a slump test and cylinders for resistance testing 7 and 28 days after. If you are buying a lot of concrete they will perform lab test as part of their service or charge for it if the volume is not enough.
  21. The CFE bill is now updated with 7 different costs being showed. This is probably a first step towards reducing subsidies but the price still has not changed as to warrant a $200 to $600 or even worse minimun to $2000. If you are using a biodirectional meter you should probably check that 1. The reading they are charging is actially accurate and 2nd if the meter may be malfunctioning and not registering your solar energy. The only other explanation y can think of is that the guy in charge of getting the reading for you meter had not stopped by in a while and they are charging for all that consuption.
  22. If all you are looking for is the boveda roof I would recommend Gabriel Perales 3311163927. He has done bovedas for me in contracting jobs, plus he does other things (electrical, welding, plumbing) makes it easier if you only talk to one instead of coordinating several people.
  23. Haha love the sleeping gringo part. That does seem quite excessive and expensive. Even in Sayulita where you might have to pay a premium for almost every material.
  24. IMSS actually sends the amounts you should pay to the site of your construction about 10 days before they need to get paid. And you can make the payment at any bank. The only thing you need to make sure is that the GC has registered your construction and workers. And dont give him money, ask him to give you the invoice from IMSS. It contains info like how many workers are you paying.
