What is Green Building
In general, green building is not just about high-tech solutions like solar power and windmills. Green building is about making your house work for you to improve your life. It should be less maintenance, more relaxing to live in, as free from toxins as possible and hold its value better as an investment. Green building in Costa Rica is the fast-growing segment of the construction industry, and all houses in the U.S. and Europe will probably be built “green” within a few years. When you go to sell your house someday, it will be worth much more if its built green now.
The core of green building is a keen understanding of the local environment – weather, topography, airflow, sun position, etc, and then designing a house to suit these conditions. One of the first precepts of Permaculture is “prolonged observation” of the land, and this applies as well to green building. So many people hire architects that have never been to the area, and they make unforgivable mistakes.
The building grows out of the landscape as naturally as any plant; its relationship to the site is so unique that it would be out of place elsewhere
– Frank Lloyd

Base Floor Plan
With rising energy prices and a growing demand for healthy homes and eco-friendly construction, more and more people are coming around to building green either from the start or as retrofit installations and or natural cooling systems.
There are multiple benefits to building green from health to efficiency to the environmental and social benefits of eco-construction methods. It takes a little more time to build a sustainable home but it more than pays for itself in the long term benefits of “doing it right”.
The following are comments we have received from our neighbors.
I offer my endorsement and recommendation for Edsart and Bio Caribe Real Estate, Costa Rica. You’re in good and honest hands, it’s a beautiful eco-paradise!
I believe Bio Caribe to be unique in its privacy, it’s dedication to live with nature and creating a breathtaking environment. And that is why I bought into Bio Caribe Real Estate.
Coming to be owners of Bio Caribe could not have been a more enjoyable and smooth process especially being an offshore property for us. Edsart Besier the owner of Bio Caribe not only took the time and effort every step of the way but proved his integrity and professionalism.
As many people of our generation, Paul and I grew up and have worked in several places – this has spurred a love to explore the world and discover new places. However, as time passes, we both have started to long for a place we can call home.
