Hi Permies,

I wanted to make a post to see if others are interested in building homesteads in Costa Rica or Panama. Maybe both :)

I'm from Newfoundland, Canada (Cold Winters) and in 2018/19 I took an 8-month long vacation on the Caribean side of Costa Rica and Panama. LOVE the Area, People, and Countries.

I was able to visit several IC's, and areas and got a feel for the potential these countries have to offer.

I do not have land, yet met and know of a few landowners that are looking to build community and welcome new members to thier communities.

If you are interested in moving, building, living in Costa Rica/Panama. Please join the forum, connect, share and let book our tickets :)

Just to set a small plan/vision.

We are looking at hosting Workshops in Building Bamboo Huts $2K for 2 weeks.
Learn and build. After 2 weeks, one can stay and rent the hut $200 to $400/mt, while helping to build the community.
Provide 20-30hrs/wk working on Gardens, Food forest, Site development, Construction, Food Prep, Etc.

Work, Live, Play and Grow the community :)

Thoughts, comments, suggestions are welcomed

Cheers,
Craig

What to build?

Ok so we have the land (a wish @ this time ;)  and now we need shelter.
We have little time and less money, and what is the best way to get a shelter.

So if we have bamboo we can build a Geodesic Bamboo Stardome :)

Cheap, Fast and Sturdy.

https://simplydifferently.org/Star_Dome

Basically, 15-20 bamboo poles, plastic string and trap/plastic sheet can build a simple, fast and cheap shelter

Plastic String Make your own :)

Once we have basic shelter we can then look at building Bamboo Huts for better accommodations :)

Once we have Shelter we can build the food forest and gardens and start community:)
