BUILDING COSTS in Central America are expected to double in next 3-4 years.

     Whatever you are buying, building, designing or remodeling, your home or resort should complement your community, respect your surroundings and create comfort. My home designs blend with nature—creating passive cooling and moving air and water according to principals of sacred geometry. By mimicking nature on your building site, we can take your vision, my experience and create a floor plan and assist you with permits—all within your budget. I hope my images inspire you to move forward with your dreams, get your ideas on paper and feel comfortable that you will not exceed your financial plan.

NEW IN 2015 – Tesla Swimming Pool
     Using earth’s gravity and rotation to pump water without electricity, we’ll be ready to fill our uniquely designed pool here at Lapa’s Song in approximately 4 weeks.   Made completely from recycled wood flooring, decorative iron bars, styrofoam and concrete, this will be outdoor living at its best, and quite possibly my best work as a designer. I’m crossing my fingers that the pool will generate DC electricity during full moon.  Check it out…So cooo00000oool! - https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/107994884394280037549/albums/6125851929995329201

MY REPUTATION in Central America.
     I have been helping people design homes in Costa Rica and Panama since 1999. My home designs have been featured in Tico Times, Lloyd Kahn’s Tiny Homes, Bloomberg News, MSNBC, CNN and recently on the Travel Channel. Twenty-three of my homes and lodges have been built in Costa Rica, Panama and Honduras. Take a peek at some of my projects:

Introduction
Costa Rica Architects, eco friendly homes and house designs. Costa Rica house plans, blueprints and fantasy tree houses,design and built. I draft house floor plans, blueprints and home designs. I work with homeowners and lodge owners who support sustainable designs. Build using renewable lumber from Teak plantations, bamboo, recyclables, re usable materials. This new building method reduces hardwood usage by 65%, and reduces the amount of sand and gravel needed by as much as 55%. Costa Rica Architects, Panama Architects, Eco-Friendly Architects. 
Let's ask nature - Your custom home design or lodge project should function as nature does. Your builder or construction activity should enhance the environment, provide employment and support conservation, educating impoverished areas within your community. These observations of how nature acts teach us about our neighbors in nature, all finding passive cooling and living comfortable in the world.

The Pump less Water System Benefiting those who wish to be off - grid, the pumpless water system uses perpetual motion to push water up to your shower heads passively without the use of well pumps. Similar to a passive ram pump using a diaphragm, the weight of the water creates pressure to your faucets and shower heads above the source, using no electricity whatsoever. ( Inquire to receive PDF. ) Free Electricity and Power The truth about alternative energy is finally leaking out through the cracks of the internet. Nature provides us clues to free energy and comfortable living. Electricity is in our every breath, you can hold it in the palm of your hand. Magnetically charged air and water particles create electricity and can be stored under your home, thus, allowing you to live OFF grid and more balanced with nature. Clues to comfortable living and decreasing energy usage can be found by watching 8.7 million species here on earth. We humans seem to be the only species that pays for power. The truth is - Energy is Free and available now.

In Boquete, These 2 rental cottages are awesome ! Below the volcana and located on a small creek loaded with birds and wildlife. You can hear the howler monkeys close by and it must be the quietest neighborhood in Boquete, Panama. Her vacation rental cabins, sometimes referred to as casitas, apartments or rental units are brand new on the market, with private baths and great kitchens. Only 10 minute walk to bus, and 3 minute drive to Boquete. There are chocolate and coffee tours close by or adventure out and go rafting and zip lining. I stayed there for 3 weeks and loved every minute. If you are looking for a long term vacation rental, this is the spot for birders, nature lovers and people looking for quiet accommodations. Thanks Marni, your awesome !!

As the designer and builder of this 6 story treehouse, I can say with certainty, all your childhood dreams about living in a treehouse can come true. Lapas Nest Treehouse took 9 months to build and does not touch or harm tree in any way. Treehouse sleeps 6-8 and can be rented weekly. Green season you can rent for 4 days and still have time for tours and fun rainforest hikes. Monkeys, Kinkajous and sloths pass by. Also views of Corcovado National Park and the Golfo Dulce. Highly recommended for those seeking adventure and higher vacation experience.

As the architect and owner of this home, the rainforest surrounding me inspires me to be my creative best. With every sunrise over the Golfo Dulce, coffee and a dip in the pool, my day unfolds with the sites and sounds of the rainforest here on The Osa Peninsula in Southern Costa Rica. Come and stay with us at Lapas Vacation Home Rental, just 15 min. North of Puerto Jimenez. See and Experience Natures all inclusive destination - OSA.
