Welcome to Casita Dos Arbolitos. The English translation of that name means (roughly): House of the Little Trees, or, more literally – according to my Mexican husband Lupe: little house two little trees.
Priced reasonably at $167,500 USD, this home in central Mexico is another artistic wonder.
This adobe house, built in 2006, is 1,300 square feet with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Green features include: solar panels, passive solar components, composting toilet, and a rainwater collection system.
This artistic front gate welcomes you into the property:

Inside… the windows seem part traditional Gothic-style, part organically grown:

Inside the bathroom…
The bano seco (dry compost system)…
Now there’s a potty that even my two-year-old would not be afraid of!
Here’s the kitchen stove with Campana:
Love the open shelving! Everything looks hand-made right down to the light fixtures:
Patio off the kitchen:
Not pictured here is the ciminea style BBQ.

(Wouldn’t be a true Mexican casa without a little veneration going on!)
View from the patio room…
Look at all those “little trees” – the house’s namesake.
