We had another great day on site today! When we arrived, the roof was up so we had some much appreciated shade. We finished all of the plastering inside the house and then moved on to painting the outside a beautiful red. It’s crazy how quickly a coat of paint made it feel like a home!

We got to spend some more time with Andrea and her husband Olivier, who will move into the house when it’s finished. It was really interesting to hear more about their lives – Olivier is a fishing guide and has taught himself English from hearing people speak on the boat.

After finishing up our wok for the day, the Coco team made a quick stop at Playa Ocotal to play in the waves. We then headed to Playa Hermosa to catch another beautiful sunset to end the day.
