Buy an existing house vs build

  I am still a firm believer that you cannot build a house in this current market for less than you can buy an existing structure. Don’t get me wrong, if you want to invest in a piece of land to hold on to, well this is clearly the time to invest in land. But […]

Winds from the North East

  The normal wind pattern on St. John are winds coming out of the south east and the water is fairly active on the south side of the island.  This keeps most of the boating activity on the north side. Over the weekend there were a few boats that stayed in the Klein & Monty […]

We will let you know when it is done and ready for parking. Merry merryvi@aol.com  340 776-6666
