looking for a builder

I am sure I will receive more than one thinly veiled insult for even conjuring this question, but here goes anyway. Does anyone know of any "good" builders in Region 7 (Maule)? From what I have read thus far, quality builders in Chile are hard to come by. But, there have to be a handful of thoughtfu...

Re: Foundation Construction in Region 7 (Maule)

Admin - Thank you for the insights.

I don't know where I read that structures needed to be on pillars in the South (not that Region 7 is in the south apparently). Glad you set the record straight.

I have read that in the south, houses need to be on concrete pillars to guard against moisture, but I don't know if Region 7 is considered the 'South' in Chile. I will be visiting Talca in a couple weeks so I am sure I will get an idea o...
