House and Baby

Lava rolling into the sea.  Standing upwind is advisable.


Like all little boys I wanted to touch it.

My face got bright red after that

Dan's foundation services

Approved.  Let's pour some cement.

Pretty sloppy work.

This is what holds our house up.

And the frame begins.

We pushed those walls up by hand.

That's a house?

Sylvie likes the loft.

Sylvie's baby shower.

We assemble our second hand watch catchment tank.

The wiring begins.

Half the solar.

Felix is born, September 17, 2013.  Not quite the home birth we were expecting, but he came out perfect.

Duck hat.

The family.

Hand-me-down crib!

Chichi gets a good sniff.

This is how we're livin'


  1. Bellisimo bambino!!! Please give Felix a big kiss and a hug from Mauricio and Paola.

    Your home is absolutely beautiful! The design of your home is pretty smart because every square feet has been maximized in the living area. It is actually a three stores house.

    Congratulations guys! You accomplished too much in such a small amount of time. Our best wishes to all of you, including Chi Chi of course. We were wondering if Coco is still around.

    Mauricio and Paola

  2. We hope you are all well. We want to see some toddler pics! Ane snd Dave
