  • Isla Palenque Construction Update, October 2014

    While it is several months later than I was hoping, we have begun construction on some of the Casitas we’ve sold. Actually, we began back in August, but as we have been starting slowly, there hasn’t been much to show until now.

    And frankly, even now there isn’t even that much to show, nor will there be for the rest of this year: sitework, infrastructure, and foundations never look like much. And since we are entering the rainiest part of the year now (as well as Panama’s unofficial “month of vacations” in November), we are mostly just preparing to “hit the ground running” when January rolls around. So I’ve been spending time with the crew for the last two months making final adjustments to building locations and orientations, determining how to minimize site disturbance with grading, and letting them do the infrastructural and preparatory work to ensure construction can move briskly and with minimal intrusions on the environment and guests.

    Silt fences and batten boards

    This short “silt fence” on the right helps keep graded soil from running onto the beach and into the ocean below the sites of our first homes. The batten boards, strings, and concrete pins mark the exact corners and edges of the Casitas we will be building. (Note how Vera the Island Pup thinks she is helping by sniffing for animals at the future location of this home’s powder room.)

    Installing the frame for a sound barrier fence

    Before getting too involved in construction, these guys are putting up a 16-foot tall, 100 foot long sound barrier fence, to help minimize the potential noise from construction activity. The fence runs along the highest point of the ridge between our Casita home sites and the Estate Rooms, about 80 yards away.

    Unloading sand and gravel on Playa Perdida for foundations

    When building on an island, preparation also means getting materials to the site, which is no mean feat. The concrete alone requires about 5 barge runs (of sand, gravel, cement, and rebar) for each individual Casita’s foundations and pool walls.

    ~

    That’s about all there is to show you for now, since so much of the work is “behind the scenes”, so to speak. In addition to the above, we are doing final take-offs and finishing up design details. I’m doing most of this design work personally, which is making me excited to see these start to go up next year, and looking forward to this time next year when the homes will have really taken shape and everyone will be able to see how sweet they are going to be: the master bathrooms are going to be gorgeous, if I do say so myself.

    Construction camps are never pretty, but at least our is nestled in the jungle. This will be my office for much of the time over the next year...

      Hi Ben. Nice to see you are moving foreward on the casitas. How many other residences have been completed? We will again probably be coming down this winter to Boquete and if we do, will for sure visit with you. Sandy is getting me more convinced we need to sell the cattle and most of our stuff here and move down. If/when we do it I will have to seriously consider a casita because as much as I love Boquete, I need to get to the sea.

      On that note, have I told you I am an America Sailing Association (ASA) certified sailing instructor? That could be a fun part time activity for me at IP and maybe valuable to IP as well. If I remember correctly you are planning a harbor/marina with moorings for residents’ boats and possibly some rentals at Playa Perdita. I would for sure put a sail boat there and maybe we could work something out so residents/visitors could be offered lesions. Your thoughts? Sincerely. Gale.
