Aloha, I have bought a piece of paradise in kona and I'm sticker shocked. Why is building labor rates so high here? I know everything is shipped in here but I feel like building codes and the fact that people can charge what they want in a sense have made everything ultra pricy. Im planning on building a slightly higher end home with all nice finishes but only 2000 sf. Im in no hurry I will take years if needed. I just want to make sure I do things right and for the best possible price. Will need everything from start to Finnish. Any advise will be much appreciated! Mahalo - Big island Brett HA HA
