What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?
Earthbag construction allows for a cooling effect when the weather is hot outside, and a warming effect when the weather is cool. There is no need for A/C because of the natural construction, as well as the 1800ft elevation.
The Domes are located in a community called Fuente Verde in the mountains of Southern Costa Rica. About 1/2 way between the town of San Isidro and the surfer's beach Dominical, it is perfectly situated where everything you may want or need is close by, but you are still hidden in your own private, secluded portion of paradise, at the very top of the community. The neighborhood is filled with conscious beings who value environmentalism and organic food.
The Diamante Valley, where the neighborhood of Fuente Verde is located, is home of Costa Rica's largest waterfall, with a 600ft drop. It is arguably one of the most stunning areas in the country. Every Tuesday there is an organic market just a couple miles from this home where the community gathers to buy and sell local, organic produce. At 1800ft, the weather is always temperate and there are less bugs than at the beach, which is just 25 minutes away.
There is a local public school in the area, but many choose to either homeschool or send their children to one of the private schools. There is an excellent private school in San Isidro, about 20 minutes from the neighborhood, which is the 2nd largest city in the country.
The community is beautiful, filled with an array of different types of people who all end up in the area for different reasons. Most are dedicated to conscious living in whatever way that means to them as individuals.
