Well, that's a oxymoron, isn't it?

LOL just kidding.... I have always heard that Jim Hanna is the builder of choice. Plus he's a super nice guy. He's here on the board as " Belize on the Beach".

The good builders are all so busy. This might be a difficult task.
My favorite is Bob Campbell. I've seen him build some beautiful and practical houses on the island for 20 odd years.

I was googling developments on AC and I came across Sapphire Beach Belize. They builder they have is Sam Gomez Construction. How good are they!! Also would it seem resonable that we could have 2 500sq ft units built by Christmas or is the pace of work down there different then Canada/Usa.

You could definitely have a house built between now and christmas. Honestly a wooden house can be built within a month. A concrete house takes longer but if your funding is timed correctly and your builder is professional enough to be able to plan the shipments in a timely fashion a 6 month build is well within the realms of possibility.

My house took 8 months to build, about 4,000 sq ft. But we had a major medical emergency during that period when we couldn't focus on the house a about a month.

I can suggest some builders if you need some contacts. Send me a PM.

Amanda you have everyone who has ever built a house on Ambergris Caye rolling in the aisles.
Lets see just run over and get a permit in the morning then buy the materials in the afternoon then get the boys to throw it all together. yep not difficult at all.

Well I have built 2 houses and have renovated and added onto 2 others - within budget and within time constraints. So I guess it has to do with attitude, funding and a little sweetness and light.
