It looks beautiful! I love the window on the far left, and the roof, and the terrace and... *sigh*

Ready by June - that sounds so quick. I thought these things took ages.

How wonderful. Manolo is a quick worker! It is nice to think of your family leaving a scattering of these beautiful houses to be enjoyed all over Mexico.

I love it! I love living on a house built into a hill, when the lower level is lower but is still above ground.

Very cool!
The drawings remind me of the desert architecture of Rick Joy (from Arizona), his work is so honest, artistic, earthy, textural ... stunning!
I can't wait to see more pics of the house as it comes along :)

Felicidades, que linda casa, me gusta mucho la distribución y las vistas que van a tener desde todas las habitaciones. Una pregunta ¿por que los baños estan separados de las recamaras?.

I found great inspiration for my own house dreams in the Flikr array of your previous house. Imitation is a sincere form of flattery. I finalize my land purchase in February and my architect is turning my pencil drawings into "The House" that will be our home. It helped greatly to know that a dream CAN become real. Life is limited only by our own fear and trepidation. Observing your creative life is a wonderful gift.
