Much progress has been made on my little house in Baho La Paz
I visited the site of my casita in Baho La Paz last week. When I was there in February the bulldozer was not able to complete the land leveling (NO trees were removed!!!) because of the heavy rains. But now, 1 1/2 months later, all the walls are up, the crown is being finished, and the roof starts this week. It is becoming VERY real - this move anticipated to take place sometime this summer.
I have a wonderful crew of Ticos working on the house - a master builder and assistant and 5 brothers in the Ramirez family. The Ramirez's have been my home-away-from-home on all my visits to CR since 2004. And they have reported seeing the Resplendant Quetzal and white-faced monkeys in the forests on my land. Our reforestation efforts are starting to bear fruit (we have planted about 3000 native trees in the area since 2005).
