We're happy to announce that we are applying the final touches to the first modern home built in the La Reserva Manabi community in Ayampe, Ecuador.
The wood and concrete floors are getting their final application of sealer. The last few minor details are installing the last of the kitchen shelves, installing the toilets and completing the bathrooms.
The construction of this home is a huge milestone! It will serve as a model home for the rest of the community.
The recently installed power and water pipes are being utilized by this new home. Also, the home gives clients a good idea of the different local building practices including the use of bamboo, the use of natural wood and some of the eco-building practices used in the area.
Sustainable features include a greywater system that uses water from the home's drains to water the gardens and plants in the surrounding yard. Also, the building is a good example of the use of water cisterns, power transformer stations and the use of septic tanks in homes in Ayampe.

Brand new eco-home with spectacular ocean views
This 1600 sq. ft. 2 Bed/2 Bath home has ocean views from the upper balcony as well as the lower living room and deck. There is an outdoor balcony, and an outdoor deck on the bottom floor of the home.
Half of the bottom floor is indoor (kitchen and living room) the other half is outdoor (storage area, outdoor BBQ, and kitchen). Both bedrooms face the ocean so you can sit and drink your coffee or wine on the adjoining deck while you watch the humpback whales go past!
Infrastructure like this model home and all the amenities at La Reserva Manabi have been planned to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of Ayampe and the local biosphere.
In keeping with this philosophy, our home models incorporate many of the latest sustainable building techniques and feature low impact designs that flow with the surrounding landscape. We also promote sustainable landscape design for each location.
