Custom Homes

Nova Custom Homes

Master builder Lorn Houston has been building custom homes in Costa Rica for more than 20 years. Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Lorn has become one of the finest home builders in the Nicoya Peninsula. Lorn’s Eco-Friendly Green Building practices incorporate sustainable solar energy resources, renewable water treatment, and other low impact building processes.

Lorn is Armonia Oceanview Eco Village’s visionary. As an environmentalist and owner of one of the development’s lots, he has a personal stake in maintaining and utilizing Armonia’s natural resources while still constructing a lovely, comfortable, and well-built home.

The infrastructure for water, underground electric, telephone, and high-speed Internet access to each lot is already in place.  Some 2000 trees have been planted throughout the development, further enhancing the area’s natural beauty, and drawing animals and birds.

Solar hot water and pool pumps, rainwater collection tanks, dual-flush, water-saving toilets, septic treatment plants, windspire turbines, LED low-voltage lighting – all are  available for your home at Armonia and all reflect Lorn’s passion for preserving the environment.
