Mary Ann's Tropical Building Page

This is the web site for the three villas that I built on Anguilla and the villa that I am renovating in St Barts (see Azu Villa Renovation Page), plus tropical construction tips and resources as well. These construction projects started in 1997, although land acquisition and architectural planning started in 1995. Every stage of the construction is recorded here.

We rent the villa in St Barts and the guest cottage in Anguilla (La Vanda) and the villa at the top of the Anguilla property (Mimosa), but we keep the beachfront house and pool for our own use. And we have created a name and web page for the overall completed property: Bellamare

For details on the main Anguilla beachfront house, visit the Residence Construction Page.

For the technology center, visit the "Clubhouse" Construction Page.

And finally, for the guest cottage, our first attempt at construction on Anguilla, visit the La Vanda Construction Page.

Hunter Fan Web Site

Should be - the old address we used went to Hunter Engineering, a completely unrelated firm!

Caribbean-Friendly Supplier

'It's very difficult to find sites on the Internet that will ship direct to the Caribbean, particularly appliances. Here's one that I have had good success with:

Plastic Septic Tanks

Karen Rasmussen writes: "Your site is very interesting and informative. I am planning on building a small cottage on St. John and am struggling with the cistern and septic tank issue. Do you have any recommendations for either, what works well and is not horribly expensive."

Answer: There are plastic septic tanks for sale. They are cheaper then making concrete ones. You can use the septic tank for a cistern too- we did in Canada but usually the tank is built into the deck. If you have gound you can dig then burying is an option, if not then build it in. When you build it, I wouldn't use block - it's cheaper but prone to leaks. Good luck Mary Ann
