Our land

After several weeks of broken hearts and dead ends, the perfect little lot fell into our laps, and with only a couple days left to spare. It's near a river, on a quiet and remote trail, just a 10 minute walk to the beach.

And we've already made progress. In Mexico, nearly every house has a retaining wall. This is for two things, the first being the most obvious, security. The second is to keep your land intact should it rain a lot, and, durring the raining seasons, it rains a lot! We had the retaining wall built, and were working on finishing the fence, water, and septic tank. All should be completed by Christmas. Here's the lot with our proud builder.

Our long term plan is the have a system of Pods built that we can share with friends and family and maybe even earn some rental income. Until then,  and this is finally where the tiny house on wheels comes in, we want to build something comfortable, efficient and off the grid.
