Inside Tips for Building a Home in Hawaii

We asked Kailua-Kona architect, John Hetherington, to join us for a live discussion about what hurdles you may face when you are considering buying land and building a home on Hawaii Island. We discussed permitting, costs, availability of labor and more. John shared that he is now months out before being able to take on new clients, as are quite a few design professionals. We spoke about using the HPM “pre-designed package homes and what that entails, too. You can also check out Honsodor packaged homes, as well.
