My Villa After IRMA
      #1751814 - 11/15/17 02:39 PM (75.133.122.28)

The South Sound Villa will be demolished to the existing lowest floor which is concrete and rebuilt totally with concrete. It will also be much larger and a 7th bedroom will be added along with 8 bathrooms/showers. I might add that the hurricane ripped the tiles off the pool deck. The only things useful in the villa is the pool, pool pump room, washing machine and dryer. Everything else is destroyed.

Thatís amazing that tiles ripped off a concrete pool patio

That sounds like a major mess to deal with

We are working on it. Submitted my claim to the insurance company. Just that was a big job. Putting in the work permits for my workers, Then we start to rebuild, first remove just about everything , then the cement wall and floor will be done. Then the roofs. And on it goes.

Since my claim is so extensive took about 1.5 months to put it all together. My workers are putting in their work permit papers and as soon as that is approved, they will come to VG , demolish the villa to the cement and start building. In the meantime I need to buy a dump truck for them to use. I do have some money to rebuild but not close to the claim amount. Problem could also occur with the bank who will have control of the money, until I present bills for them to pay me.

why do your workers need to put in permits? All workers involved in rebuilds can enter before 31st December last time I checked. You just need to issue them a job offer.

No they still have to get work permits. They have "relaxed" some of the procedure. There is a lengthy procedure. I wrote a letter requesting the workers to work on my villa. The workers need to show their passports, have 2 photos and fill out a form.
What the government originally advertised was really not the actual requirements.
