Building in Mexico - The Adventure Begins....
 
As some of you may know, Rob and I have finally decided to settle down and build our home in Mexico. Almost by accident, we found the perfect neighborhood in Xpu Ha, in the jungle about 20 minutes south of Playa del Carmen. The lots are good sized, very reasonably priced, the development is gorgeous and all the services we need are available, including wireless internet. We are 5 minutes from the beach in Xpu Ha, 10 minutes to Akumal and close to dozens of cenotes.

We have quite a few friends who have also been turned on to this little piece of paradise, including our good friends Mitch and Sev. Rob and I are well into the design process of our dream home in the jungle (a process I plan to carefully document as we go along) but Mitch and Sev have already started their build and have invited us to follow along on the blog. Over the past few weeks the lot was surveyed and cleared, the pool dug and the front wall started. This week, we drove down to watch them pour the foundation.

The adventure begins.....

Thanks Phil! I figure we will document Mitch and Sev's progress first until ours gets going down the street. Should be fun!

That's great news, Rob and Michelle. Glad to hear about your new project and hope to hear about it in person when I'm down in early October for about 10 days. Hope all is well with both of you and the kids.

Congrats! You should check out the book "God and Mr. Gomez" by Jack Smith. He was a columnist with the LA Times and the story is about his building his retirement house in Baja California. It's absolutely hilarious!

Awesome news Michele and Rob! I cannot wait to follow your progress.

Wishing you lots of luck .:clap::D
