We are interested in building a house on the lot. Rocelle's parents would watch it to make sure no squatters move in. We are looking for a cement (concrete - no snakes!!) one floor home, with a kitchen, 1 or 2 bathrooms (full american style with shower), living room, three bedrooms, windows, air conditioning, back-up generator, septic tank, gate around the property. Rocelle's Dad is a carpenter and would be in charge of the work crew.
I am writiing this post to get an idea of costs to build this type of house. Again, we have already bought the lot, so that would not be part of the construction cost. The reasons we are interested in doing this is to cut down our expenses when we visit, plus we are close with Rocelle's family, + I am very close with Rocelle's 12 year old brother who would want to stay with us. If, as it appears, we cannot get him into USA, then perhaps we can spend more time in PI. Any cost estimates would be appreciated, as would suggestions about other cost items I have not included above. Thanks.
