Brick by brick in 2008

These are Manolo's drawings
of what will become our new house in 2008.
God willing construction will begin later this month.
This top drawing is what will be seen from the street,
and the bottom one is the view from the backyard.
I will be fun to blog about the whole process
of building from the ground up.
Manolo (my talented hubby)designed our house
and will be the contractor too.
Our lot is within walking distance from our lil rented cabin.

How fabulous is that!!?? A beautiful modern interpretation of Mexican vernacular architecture. (You can tell him I said that, LOL). Is that a patio in the back? You know I want to see a floor plan, right?

que lindo! va a estar muy bueno ir viendo el proceso :)
Esos dibujos me hicieron acordar a la universidad. Hice 3 años de arquitectura antes de Diseño y lo que mas disfrutaba era haciendo las laminas con los croquis. Felicitaciones a Manolo!! :)

It looks like a dream house! I can imagine you having these fabulous dinners/brunches/breakfasts on patio.
Can you watch sunset from there?

I'm so excited for you! We built our dream house in 2007. It went much more smoothly than many people led us to believe. Have fun looking for all the fixtures and little details. I enjoyed that part so much!

Your art has a featured place on our walls!

que buena pinta tiene esa casa. Lo mejor de todo es difrutar de la vivienda en una sola planta. A mí lo de subir y bajar escaleras no me gusta mucho. Por aquí están muy de moda los llamados adosados, son casas con poca anchura 7 metros de fachada mas o menos y todo en varias plantas. Supongo que así salen más casas y ganan más. Y lo peor es que los precios están por las nubes.
Me gusta pasar por tu blog y disfrutar de tu trabajo. Un saludo:
Yolanda
