Our Little Piece of Forest

Our little piece of oak forest
Casa 6 in progress
Manolo's Sketches
As of yesterday we are the proud owners of this little piece of land with 24 grown oak trees. We hope to start construction before the summer ends. Manolo says we'll be moving in Casa 6 in February 2013! Here's a peak of some of his preliminary sketches of our future house.

I guess I am late to the party...Manolo designs and builds houses that you get to live in until they are sold and then it's time to move to the next work in progress? And you create amazing beautiful art from where ever you can set up a studio and sell it online?
You guys are seriously cool and I envy your lifestyle.
All the best, Jules Means, Beverly, MA USA

How exciting!!! I've spent a fair amount of time in Mexico but have never seen an oak tree there. Though I may not have been looking. ;) What a beautiful spot!!!

That indeed sounds like a wonderful way of life. Though maybe not without stress.. Does he build environmentally-friendly? Or just.. creating stuff.?

I think we'd all love to hear more about that! A wonderful place too!

I was wondering the same thing as to why do you move so much. I understand now. This is like a model home that you live in.
