Breaking in the Beach House

It was a long time coming (8 months to be exact), but the beach house is finally finished! Ok, so it’s not totally finished. There are still plenty of details to be addressed. We’ve got trim to put up, painting to do, furniture to make, etc. but the basics are complete. We’ve got walls, a roof, and after long last, a completed wood floor! We chose Christmas eve 2013 as the first night to sleep in our new beach house!

Ardilla spent the night at the top of the stairs guarding the door. Good girl.

makeshift bed
We haven’t made the bed yet, but a thin foam mattress on the new wood floor was just fine.

  3. Dear Holly, If I understand correctly, please bear with me…the lot goes for 20k and the house for 15K then can I come there with 35K and close a deal?

    Kind regards

      • I have an offer in Jiquilillo for 3 Manzanas and for US$20,000.00 Ocean front without any infrastructure whatsoever and next to the dirt road to Chinandega.

        Would you consider 20K if I build immediately?

        Have heard from people around San Juan del Sur that many people just buy lots to speculate and never build.

        Best regards and happy new year!!

After 33 hours of labor little Luna is here! Born at 5am on her dad's birthday. Last lunch out with just the two of us before the baby comes so we ordered dessert. Passionfruit mousse and a chocolate bon bon at our favorite restaurant in Managua. #olaverde #tablefor2 #duedate+4 Cruised to catarina to order some bamboo furniture for the new house. Due date +2, no baby yet.... #bamboo Lake view from bed. Not too shabby! #lagunadeapoyo Final wait for the baby. 4 days til my due date. Pretty nice place to hang out and give birth! Relaxing in the last week before the baby comes. Kim ukulele jams while Lobo snoozes. Homebrews in Nica. Just a taste for the preggo but oh so good! #homebrew #nicaragualiving
