Post #1 of 2
I am new to this website and have been scouring all posts for information. We are from
Alberta, Canada and are considering purchasing property in Mexico. I think that we have
decided to buy a bare lot and build. While we are building we would have our fifth wheel
trailer on site and live there if possible, and maybe rent if the rainy season is too miserable.
We don't know if this plan is feasible, and are still looking for information on all aspects of
moving to Mexico. My question today is what are these foam panels that you are talking
about? Do you use them for interior walls only or are they used for exterior/structural walls
as well. I am sorry if this question sounds ignorant, but as far as building in Mexico goes
we are!! We have a concrete construction company (2 Concrete pumps, prep crews, placing/finishing
crews) in Alberta so the type of construction we are used to is very different. I went through
Rolly's website building projects and was aghast at how long construction takes in Mexico.
Is this the norm? We expect that we can do a certain amount of work ourselves, the tough
part sounds like finding experienced and good trades (whatever those are in Mexico). Any advice
would be appreciated
