Planning to build in the Caribbean? Read this first...

Caribpro Magazine has a great article all expat house builders should commit to memory.
Better Building : Stop the Construction Carnival
by James Post tells it like it is. I have heard enough construction nightmare stories to write another book. And do not discount the warning from Mr. Post about contractors who disappear with funds counting on the ineffectual legal system to prevent them suffering real consequences. This happened to a friend of ours.

Another friend found that the inflow to her septic tank ran uphill! Not a pretty picture, is it?

No wonder we want to build our own house.

livingdominica: yep, there are sharks in the construction waters who smell expat blood...
