      own door knobs and kitchen cabinet pulls. Door hinges are included in budget.
  3. Gutters not included, but can be added.
  4. All exterior paint at the Village is a standard color. You may choose your own
      color of paint for interior walls.
  5. Closets do not include doors and are simple shelves. We recommend
      purchasing closet systems. We will gladly install these at no extra charge,
      if the client provides them during the construction process.
  6. Landscaping (paisajismo) not included, however ‘The Village’ can provide
      this service if needed.
  7. Inverter not included, however we will provide an additional panel, prepared

      agreement with Tropigas to provide and install large tank.

10. The rate of construction depends on the schedule of payments.
      The construction of a house can be accelerated if the client so wishes, simply
      discuss this with the office manager at Colorado designs and with your
      personal project manager.
11. Payment of all local permits are the responsibility of the client. Colorado
      Designs will provide the logistical support to process the permitting for ‘Uso del
      Suelos’ with the Ayuntamiento and negotiate payment to ‘Seguro Social’, ‘
      Turismo’ and ‘Medio Ambiente’.
12. Colorado designs recommends that you visit the project about every two
      weeks during the construction process. Please be in regular communication
      with the project manager assigned to your Eco Villa. Site visits during the
      week are preferred when ever possible.
13. Upon completion of your house, you will receive a certificate of occupation,
      at which time you can move in will be responsible to begin paying the
      monthly home owners association fee.
