Starting a casa in Pescadaro Baja Sur

We recently started building a new casa in Pescadaro Baja Sur MX. It is a small town about 45 miles north of Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific side. 8miles south of todos Santos  (home to HOTEL CALIFORNIA). I spent a month visiting my family and finalizing the plans. It is being built pretty much by hand. The crew hand dug and pored the foundation wheel barrow by wheel barrow.  All the rebar segments were cut & tied together by hand.  What a job. I will post photos as we go along.

More pictures of a Baja Building Project

These are photos as the construction is taking place in Elias Callais Baja Sur Mexico. This project is about 35 north of Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific side.
The crew is working hard to make this vacation home a special place.  

This project is a series of buildings. There is the main house, the sleeping quarters, the mechanical building for the solar etc. the garage for the "toys" and an outdoor kitchen. A beautiful pool has just been finished too. l I am awaiting the pictures and will post when I get them.

To build your home in southern Baja, contact me. Oregon phone 503-999-3992 or email Jason, my son, has a great crew to build what ever you can design. He is a master wood worker & bi-lingual.  He has a very modern shop & the best crew around. I am available to help with all the interior design. My own Casa is going to be beginning very soon. Waiting on final plans.

Can also help locate lots on beach or inland for magnificent views.

More building on the Baja MX

Clients from Washington had my son  Jason build them their vacation home  and it is just getting finished. I helped them with their colors. They found us via this blog. I took a trip to MX to see the home during construction. We were able to select the colors by email and a meeting in my Salem OR office.  They described a beautiful sunset they had seen while on the beach and said they would like to use those colors. While I was in MX I went to that beach where their new home was being constructed. Using paint fan decks I selected colors that I thought fit their sunset. Back in the states I ordered large paint samples for their  approval.  The clients said I got it right. Yahoo. The paint store in Todos Santos matched our US paint chips  and another beautiful Mexican casa is now almost complete. More pictures coming soon.

If you want to build on the southern Baja from Todos  Santos to Cabo Sam Lucas please contact me via email. I would be happy to talk to you about your project.

Lots of Changes.
