Looking for a English speaking stone house builder in Portugal You may have found the perfect house in Portugal, perfect except that you may want to make some changes or remodeling or extension or perhaps building an outside dining area that fits in with the overall look and style of your old stone house.
You may not know the names of the masons techniques to be used particularly in Portuguese but you want the new work to blend in well with the existing ancient stone walls.
Worry not ! our masons produce work that they are proud of and that you will be amazed by. For someone trying to have work carried out on your property in Portugal it can be ultra stressful and emotional for three main reasons.
1, Communication, lack of and making yourself understood. How to describe what you want. Especially if you are not here all the time.
2, Cultural difference, expectations that you have will not be matched by your Portuguese counterpart.
3, Understanding local construction methods, practices and materials. These three heart attack inducing areas can be removed by working with a building company like Castelo Construction Lda. www.casteloconstruction.com
