Brisas House Progress in Late April.

 

Holly and Kim Break Ground on their Nicaraguan Nest

We’ve built a few houses/structures in Nicaragua so far, but none are really baby friendly. Either too small, no power, no water, or both, we had been planning the true family house for a while. Once we found out there was baby on the way, we finalized the plan and broke ground on a 1400 sq ft, (1900 including workshop), 2.5 bedroom, 2 bath home on lot #22 at Brisas. We’ve let our team know that the pressure is on to finish the house before September when the baby is due. Will it happen? follow along on our blogs: hipEhabitat.com and saltwatermama.com

Lot #22 Caretaker’s House

We are the first to build on our lot at Brisas (other than the model home which is still in construction as well). We started by building a caretaker’s casita out of large bricks, with a Nicalit roof supported by Guanacaste beams. The house is 320 sq ft (including the small porch) and has cost us about $7k and 6 weeks to build.

We still need to finish the details such as a door for the bodega, screen door, window screens, connecting the electricity, and painting the inside.
