Today we broke ground on our property! Since our land is on a steep incline, we need to create a somewhat flattened pad to drop the container on. In order to avoid erosion, we must take care not to carve out too big a space while still working to maximize our view and building platform. It is the rainy season here in Costa Rica so it is certainly not the most ideal time to move earth. We are dancing with mother nature to get these first essential steps completed before the super heavy and longer rains set in.
