Welcome to the Belize Eco Village Bulletin 13 update. If you share our values, virtues, and visions contact us. We are eager to hear from you regarding our project. As more eco-friendly people reach out to find a tribe we believe our Belize Eco Village is worth a look. We are eager to share our lessons learned to help others and ask your help in return. We are looking at EcoShell I dome homes for our next model homes and are eager to hear how you feel about them. This is May 21 to 28 trip progress report with inside and outside work progress.
In previous BEV Bulletins, we announced our Executive Investment Summary is on the Beltraide website. After eight years of blood, sweat, and tears it is time to attract a joint venture partner to take things to the next level. All comments, questions, and shares are greatly appreciated. Gian Hernandez was at the Caribbean Hotel & Resort Investment Summit in Miami in May to promote the project. The Beltraide Executive Investment Summary is on their website and we are eager to talk with interested investors.
Visit Our Belize Earth Block Homes
The two Stabilized Compressed Earth Block (SCEB) homes are almost complete. These homes stay cool even in sunny tropical Belize and turned out better than planned. Special thanks to Matt Miller and Marga Waals Miller for a visit to check out our BEV project and homes.
The crew has completed the showers, basins, and toilets. The showers have a concrete pan and galvanized metal lining for a modern look and easy cleaning. They installed ceramic basins on a concrete counter and medicine cabinets with mirror above. The toilet is American standard with eco-efficient water saving flush. (Belize Health Department has still not approved our compost toilet plans yet). The kitchen has a double stainless steel sink in front of the large kitchen window. The refrigerator goes to the left and the stove goes to the right, with a tall pantry in the corner. The septic system took much longer to install than anticipated but we wanted a long term problem free system so I contracted with Dave a retired American plumber to design and supervise the work.
The security bars for the doors and windows are being installed now. The rain gutter is attached and the rain storage tanks are in place. The caretaker family moved in on May 29th.
Before flying home I drove to Corozal Belize to meet with Rodney McGraw to learn more about and look at his dome home. More on what I learned about the benefits of dome homes in Belize in a future blog.
The passion and purpose of the Morningstar NEWS are to condense hours of research down to two minutes of education, information and inspiration for a healthy lifestyle and mindset. Completing the two Stabilized Compressed Earth Block houses is a major milestone for our Belize Eco Village project. Eco-friendly homes are a key to sustainable living and transition towns like ours.
