My client Peter from New York, decided to follow the construction process of his home I designed. He changed the cold and snow for tropical weather and grilled fish, while involving directly during all construction stages. Unless you hire professional assistance with proven experience, it makes it easier for architectural inspectors like me to keep track of everything that goes on at all times.That makes this process a more open and clear one for all parts of the team. Construction can be complex, specially in such a place like Puerto Viejo, where culture, distance and construction methods represent a challenge to whoever that’s not a local.
It’s been 3 months of construction so far, and we already have a roof, with a nice overhang of course, to protect Peter and wife from those heavy rains. Concrete blocks provide a fast building process since local man power is experienced with it, and man power is a critical point in the area. All this concrete will be “smoothed “by the use of local wood Kasha, the hardest wood in the area, with beautiful yellow tones.
