We design and build self-sufficient homes
Tucked away in the mountains of Villa Canales, an old wooden cabin had been left abandon within a natural reserve and had deteriorated to be uninhabitable. CASSA took down most of it, utilizing its foundation and small brick wall, and revived the home with a new bamboo structure. The same cabin style was retained and with the aid of large windows and transparent roofing, the new home is bathed in natural light. All salvageable material from the old construction was used, from the beautiful granite floor, the main doors and wood from some walls that was used decoratively. Like all CASSA homes, it has the integration of all the services with elements of sustainability; rainwater harvesting, water cistern for storage, pump for redistribution inside the house, solar panels, LED lighting, efficient stove, separation of gray and black water, family garden fed by gray water and an underground black-water treatment system.
