COMPLETED PROJECT PHOTOS
Somewhat secluded - taken from an hour long hike
The main house sits above a bodega/outdoor studio. The steep butterfly-roof channels all the water in a catchment system and into a buried 2500 gallon tank.
First glimpse from the road, a 20 minute "exuberant" drive from the beach in Uvita.
