Sand castle update


The sand castle is coming out of the ground! We now have footers, re-bar and our own baño. We have pretty much blown through the first $10,000, which has covered the Architect, lot survey, lot leveling, building permits,  wages, gas ,septic and some materials. So far no major surprises. Though the concrete prices have gone up, since they have deiced to make concrete block rocks for new cruise ship port that is being built in Penesco.

Cost break down to date are;


Lot leveling-$3,200

Mexico building permits- $980.00


Septic -$2,200.00

Gas- $200.00

Wages and materials $1,870
