Lastest Costa Rica Design

Personally writen by Kyle Edginton

We have been working on the design for our future Costa Rica home for some time. It changes constantly and this is the latest that we have. I have shadowed the model with what I believe to be a noon time sun during the “winter” months of the year. That is, when the sun is lowest in the sky. As you can tell, that’s still pretty high.

What is it exactly?

The top level is the main house with the kitchen, semi-circular dining balcony, living room and hallway to office and master bedroom. The master bedroom has a glass shower that faces out to the private courtyard.

The second level is where the bedrooms are for our three children, plus their common bathroom. This is accessed from a circular staircase that matches the curve of the semicircular dining balcony.

The third level is where the guest rooms are located, along with the outdoor kitchen that they could use. Behind this is where the car would be parked. The two lines in back represent the driveway that would wrap around below the pool and to the bottom of the property. Notice that the pool has an infinity edge that would allow those coming up the driveway to see the water coming over the edge.

The green areas that you see are, as much as possible, the natural slope of the property. There will be a lot of trees on the property, I just haven’t bothered to put them into the model.

  • You have given this such a lot of thought. I applaud your planning and design. This sort of planning is way above what I did and what I see others do. Often it is a whimsical adventure, turn sour. Many of us didn’t think through, consequently becoming disappointed. I am happy with my move and having as much success as is realistically possible. It will not be like the US. Glad to get to know you and hope you and your family have a smooth time of it. Please keep me posted. Am very interested in seeing how you make your way. I am always happy to help in any way I can. Su Amiga, Martha
