Construction at Vista Mundo has been underway for a few months. We are beginning to see real progress!
The first casita has walls, a roof, and the staircase leading to the 2nd floor is finished. Our windows are ordered, and due to be installed in the next week. And inside painting is scheduled for tomorrow.
As soon as the windows are installed, then more inside work will be completed. Light fixtures will be put in, tile is ready and waiting to be delivered, and so much more.
Our selections for the kitchen and bathroom cabinets, and the granite counters have been finalized and orders placed. We expect installation to be completed in March.
Next on our list is purchasing more furniture, to add to what we already have acquired.
So, as you can tell, progress is definitely being made. We look forward to lots of activity in the next couple of weeks.
In addition to the construction side, the Vista Mundo Retreat Center is in the process of being designed. This amazing 60-person retreat room is on target to open in December, 2020.
Last, but not least, we are just finalizing the design for the next 4 apartments to be build right next door to the first casita. The plan is for these to be finished by December 2019. Our plan is that one of the apartments will be used as a temporary retreat room until the 60-person room is ready.
Even though the process is hectic at times, being in residence in beautiful, sunny and warm Costa Rica makes it all worthwhile. Nothing like being able to watch your dream come true step by step.
