I am building myself a house in the North near Sosua. I have been watching other construction in the area and its slow moving. I was going to put in the foundation and walls. They said 6 to 8 weeks. My Dominican novia would watch them, since its for both of us. I charged all the material on my credit cards. Week 7 I get a call that I need the final payment. I was shocked, really shocked. These guys worked. They had all the material they needed and they finished it fast. WOW.
