As I'm sure you know, that is an unusual request in this area! I think it's very do-able though. I've spoken with a lender that I work closely with, and she asked that I get more details that she can send to her construction loan department in order to get a definite answer for you.

The key is the cost of the lot or land. Lots are going to start around 100K. Insurance is what has been hurting us on the island, even though insurance would be cheaper with new construction and built to the international building code. ... more
