Scenes from our new home

We're getting so close to our move-in date! I've had requests for updated pictures of our property and buildings, so here are a few from this weekend.


The picture above is the bodega, where we will actually live, until we build our own residence.


This is the cute little 2-bedroom team house. I'll put up some interior pictures tomorrow. This building has been painted (on the inside) and some of the floor tile is installed. The bathrooms have a long way to go, though.


Here's the water tank. It is not yet completed - but it's about seven feet tall now. The tank sits on a hill above the flat spot where the buildings are located. This will give us greater water pressure.



Looking down from the hill with the water tank, you can see how the two buildings are situated. The building on the left is the team house, and you can just barely see the bodega off to the right. Between the two buildings is a foundation, which will eventually be another small residence, for housing interns who stay for a few months at a time.

We still have a ton of work to do, like dragging in topsoil and doing lots of landscaping - but the buildings are almost habitable!

The plan for the bodega really does work! It does look like a small one story house from roadside.

How exciting - great to see the progress and I'm all for better water pressure and good drains....

Looking forward to the interior photos too.

It looks great! The better water pressure sounds like a good idea to me!

Thanks for the update. Good water pressure is a blessing. Trust the 'slow' move is working well. Fauche
