Casa Sol Verde: New Pics

We have named the Marbello Container Home Casa Sol Verde.

Here are a few new pics of the project.

Update: We have recently improved our grey water system. It now automatically supplies water to the plants in our front yard. The system is working great so far.

Marbello Project: Pool and Landscaping Update

I realized that I hadn’t posted any of the pictures from the pool or of the landscaping. The pool has been finished and used daily since early February. The solar pool filter unit has been awesome! I only run the AC pump for about an hour a day while we vacuum the bottom of the pool.

We are finishing up the landscaping and it has really transformed the house. We now feel like we are part of the beauty and nature of Nicaragua. I think that the iguana we had swimming in the pool one morning would agree with me. After his swim he spent the day relaxing in a tree in the front yard.

We have made an addition to our grey water system. It now automatically waters the plants on the hill in our front yard. Most of the new plants will need very little care once they have adjusted to their new home. Here are the pics:
