Dr. Anello and his wife Mari are a very busy couple running their own medical practice in Ontario, Canada. They have entrusted their son and his girlfriend with $200,000 USD to find them an off-the-grid home in Belize at an eco community called Better In Belize (www.BetterInBelize.com). Wes and Alicia embark on their journey and are greeted by Steve Reichert (a local expert) to show them 3 eco homes located in this Belize off grid community.
They start off by viewing a 2 story off grid waterfront home priced at $200,000 USD which was at the top of their budget. It is a beautiful home with Belizean hardwood finishes and a very large open concept and remarkable views of the Belize rainforest. Then they proceeded to view an earthbag eco home which was smaller but truly in sync with a low footprint, eco friendly and off the grid. The third home they viewed was a 3 bedroom cabin located almost at the entrance of this Belize eco village which was priced at $119,000.00 way under budget which gave them room to make their own renovations.
After viewing the these three Belize eco homes they proceed to relax and brainstorm down by the river with a beautiful waterfall as their background. In the end they decided to go for the earthbag home as this home truly balanced his dad's request for a practical home and his mom's desire for a creative style home.
