Surfshore Villa

As I enter through the gate of Surfshore Villa, I’m first struck by the bright colours. The shades used in the house’s exteriors and interiors seem plucked from the blooming hillside garde...

Caribbean Projects

Construction on a Caribbean island may sound exotic, but it can be a difficult process.  Construction Managers (CM) face a number of unique challenges.  Issues the CM must confront include s...

Testing it out for Myself
By Tim Peck, OBM International

Construction in the BVI can be very challenging in terms of budget, quality and the time it takes to build.As architects, if we’re going to experiment with new materials and construction techniques, perhaps it’s only fair to try them out on ourselves before trying them out on our clients' projects. I reviewed a number of constr...

Editor's Notes
Editor

Last year was my first Christmas in the BVI, and it gave me yet another reason to love living here. Highlights from last year’s holidays were Christmas on Main Street, the sand sculpture contest in Cane Garden Bay and an impromptu Hanukkah feast in Shannon on Christmas Eve, then, on Christmas Day, a Secret Santa gift exchange in Road Town followed by a beach day at Josiah’s then Christ...

Owning a Property
The Legalities

The conveyance of a property (i.e. the transfer of title) at times can be a daunting and complex procedure for the uninitiated. It is therefore helpful to have an understanding of the legal processes involved. The conveyance of a property is best carried out by a legal representative whose responsibility it is to ensure that the client receives the necessary guidance as to their rights and obligat...

Made on Island
Made on Island

Nautool  -  It’s a phrase I personally like to hear: "Made on Island." It’s becoming increasingly rare in an age of imports, and to have a business that developed and continues to grow strong on island is a mark of growth within the community. Nautool have managed just that, to grow and adapt with the economy and still have original ideas that emerge into handcrafted metal, a...

Oil Nut Bay
Oil Nut Bay

Oil Nut Bay Resort possesses one treasure that no other resort in the BVI does: Oil Nut Bay itself. The swimming area of Oil Nut Bay is not just another shoreside alcove in the BVI with a few yards of shallow water that gradually deepen to the sea. Though the Bay does contain deep waters, a large portion of its reef-protected area is more like a wading pool, with shallows around much of the circum...

Little Bay
Little Bay

A New Community  -  Residents of the BVI recognize Little Bay as the up and coming premier neighbourhood on the Islands. Recently, new sections of land have been released for sale in the beachside cove. These developments will work together to create a luxury community. The theme of the new community at Little Bay is forward-thinking, conscientious construction in a quiet, private, beach...

Conscience of Wood
Conscience of Wood

To me, wooden planks, as well as the trunks from which they are fashioned, have always had a deeper mystery of strength and quiet confidence. The morphing of style is a part of Caribbean culture and history, and it is revealed in furniture. Early colonists, wanting to replicate European styles, used mahogany in the Caribbean to create furniture, albeit the pieces tended to be more rugged in appear...

The Water's Edge
The Water

Too Cool for the Pool?  -  We live in a tropical climate, and I’m sure few people feel sorry for us when we talk about how chilly the weather gets around the winter holidays, but for those living in hilltop properties, it’s time to unpack the blankets and duvets and exchange shorts and t-shirts for jeans and sweaters. Wind speeds can reach up to 20 knots during this time of y...
