Another important consideration Tod says is choosing an experienced builder, one who has built in that location exten- sively, as the island itself demands a certain scientific knowl- edge because of its climate and the specific materials required to build there. You also want a builder who is committed to that location long-term and will be around in a few years if needed. Finally, it is very important that a builder have a specific process and systems in place for communicating effectively. Custom builds often occur at a remote distance and if a builder cannot show you the site or materials or get your approval when you cannot physically be there, then you are going to have a problem.
