When planning the construction on our mission property, we had a few immediate ideas. We wanted to use local materials and styles, as much as would be practical. We wanted the buildings to blend into the local landscape somewhat.
The Hotel Finca El Capitan, here in Gracias, has served as an example and inspiration for our buildings. It is a nice hotel, but very rustic.
Allen is making some alterations in the materials and manner of construction, so that hopefully we will be able to convey a similar rustic country feeling, in buildings which will be stronger, and will be a bit easier to keep clean and maintained.
