Ours is not the only home under construction in the Manabi Province. To view photos of the beautiful coastal Las Palmas development, please see www.laspalmasecuador.com and read about our friends, Gary and April Scarborough who are developing this land we call the New West.
Front of the house with the second floor balcony (right) and patio (left) taking shape.
Back door entrance and cement has made it all around the first level.
Northwesterly view facing the Pacific, and the forms on the third-floor rooftop patio are in place. Going to be a great elevated view from there.
Stairway up to master suite has been mudded.

Mudding another electrical line.
Smoothing the exterior south wall.
