The developer is Richard Krug, who has lived in Costa Rica for the past 30 years, and is best known as one of the pioneers of sportfishing tourism in the country. The builder was Gabriel (Gabe) Tomasini, a licensed welder who was a California building inspector before coming here to build this home.

Why Container Homes?
Quick Build TimesAt a fraction of the cost
A container home can be built quickly. It costs less to build than a house built of conventional materials. It can be customized and built off-site, and then delivered to your land ready to move in. Once completed you can live in your tiny home, while you build your dream home on the same property.
Off-Grid ReadyEasily converted to self-sufficiency
If you are contemplating off-the-grid living, a tiny container home is far easier to customize with solar panels and water supply than is a traditional home. Everything from the electrical wiring to the plumbing is easily adaptable to a solar panel system, rain catchment, and even battery backups and cisterns.
Low MaintenanceEnvironmentally friendly homes
A tiny home costs less to build, and less to maintain. Containers are built to withstand extreme cold and extreme heat, and everything from rain to snow to sleet. They are earthquake- and hurricane-proof. Tiny homes are environmentally friendly. They leave a smaller footprint, and do less harm to nature.
