Every bario has a master builder who can read plans and build a quality house.
If you build outside David ,your costs fall off dramaticly.Pay your workers every week,no contract.With a contract to build your cost goes up 25 percent and you must prepay for labor and material.
Order and pay for material yourself,your builder will give you a list each week.
Start building in jan. or feb.the dry season. If it rains,your workers will not work but you must pay them for that day.
It may seem a daunting task but I did it and enjoyed building my home where nothing was before.
You can come and see if you like.Hope you find this helpful.Carol 68589338
