Publisher Comments:

This Ol' Casa - Building in Baja 101 is a step-by-step guide to building a dream home in Baja, Mexico. Covering everything from criteria to be used when evaluating a lot for purchase, to deciding what style of home to build, to selecting a design team, to learning to read and understand your blueprint, to selecting a builder, and all the way through construction, this primer is intended to de-mystify the process so that even a layman can manage it and emerge a winner.

Eschewing jargon and technical detail, it is written in a nuts-and-bolts manner that laymen can easily follow. Each chapter ends with a checklist summarizing necessary take-away information, so that at every stage, the reader understands what to do and how to do it. Never before has all the information been gathered and organized in one place, and this is a must read for anyone considering owning property or building a home in Baja.
