What have I been doing with my life so far?

So I figured that I should really start off with what I've been doing for the past 3 years of my life. It all started with a phone call beckoning me to Mexico to renovate a baby hacienda, turning it into a luxury self sustainable hotel / guest house.
And that´s what I did, with absolutely no background in building, design, decor, or eco-friendliness I dove straight in. It has been a tough 3 years I can tell you, but at last we opened and people love it.
We are 100% solar powered, recycle all of our water, grow our own organic produce as well as all those little things that you won´t notice to make us eco friendly and sustainable...
You can see how different it is now compared to when I arrived, stunned into silence (does not happen often I can tell you) by the fact from the gate I couldn´t even see the main house...but now look..we have a drive way and everything!
Enjoy and if you like what you see, pass us on..maybe you`ll come visit us one day!

how it looks now
the ruined old water wheel

so much to do

and all done, these globe lights look lovely at night!
