Click on the photo to view the slideshow of a development on Margarita island of 265 homes. The first model house (see photos) was completed. The first story of an additional 30 homes was also constructed. The response to the model home has been exceptional. During the hottest part of the day, the house is 15 degrees cooler than the outside temperature, even before the windows and doors have been installed. Unfortunately this project’s funding was halted by the Venezuelan government and the project has been on hold ever since.
