A Tiny House in Mexico

13 Mar

We have had two days with spotty electricity. There have been blown fuses, and well it’s a long boring story. So instead, I’ll share pictures of Lisa’s mother’s house.

A casita on the property.

When we decided to move to Mexico, Lisa and I discussed bringing her mother to live with us.  We brought her to Bacalar on vacation in February 2014 to see if it would be something she would consider. (See blog archives). She was all in!

Lovely patio with fountain and stairs to the roof

Little did she know that it would take two years to move into her little house.

About three hundred square feet, she has one bedroom and a spacious porch.

Lots of niches for her collections

Bathtubs are not common in Mexico, but Alice wanted a small tub.

The view from her bedroom

Being close by, Alice feels safe and has us to visit. She has been having fun fixing up her little house and planting a garden. We are going kayaking next week if the wind stays calm. She is having a blast.

    Beautiful! How fortunate Alice is to have that lovely place and be close to the two of you.

      She is having fun. As we we’ll know, the newness wears off anything. I hope she continues to feel at home here.

    That is a great tiny house! Do people ever put in back up propane generators or have emergency generators to run some lights and the fridge?

      She definitely has a more flamboyant style than we do. It is all her own.

      I designed the shell, but the interior is all Alice. David, our contractor designed the fountain.

    Are you still living in Mexico? I am interested in the Lake Chapala area because of the weather.

      Yes, we still live here. Lake Chapala is on the other side of the country from Bacalar.
