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.

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

    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!!
