Building a home at Sierpe del Pacifico with Marc the Builder
Building a home at Sierpe del Pacfico is easy. All the important logistics and processes have been streamlined and refined. Home designs that are functional, attractive, and affordable have been tested and fine-tuned. Most importantly, the SDP recommended Contractor Marc Leroux is a magician of tropical home design and construction.
Originally hailing from Quebec, Canada, Marc and his wife Shani have been living in Sierpe for the last 7 years. After running a bed and breakfast for a brief period of time, Marc fully committed himself to the tropical home construction business. He has since become the primary contractor for North Americans building in the Sierpe area and remains very busy throughout the year.
Building a home in a remote, tropical environment is not without it's challenges. Rain, sun, timely sourcing of building materials, a limited labor force, and the logistics involved with building "off-the-grid" require experience, versatility, and extensive planning from a general contractor. Very few contractors in the area are able to navigate these challenges and build a home to North American standards that is attractive, affordable, and functional. Marc Leroux handles all this in spades. His knowledge of how to build for the environment, utilize specialty materials unique to Costa Rica, and get the most out of local labor is unparalleled. Furthermore, Marc has a very good eye for aesthetic and firmly understands and embraces the philosophy of environmental stewardship and harmony required of Sierpe del Pacifico residences. On the logistics front, Marc is very well prepared to deal with materials procurement, transport, and inclement weather during the construction process.
Another important element that Marc brings to the table is the ability to communicate effectively with all parties involved in the construction process. Marc speaks fluent Spanish and understands the business culture of Costa Rica. This is of paramount importance when it comes to procuring things like building permits and the best materials at a fair price. His background as a contractor in the US and Canada also gives him a mastery of what North American clients expect in terms of quality, affordability, and clear, concise communication.
In addition to all of the import factors above it should be mentioned that Marc is truly passionate about building. He loves being creative and has great enthusiasm for eye catching designs. Very few things bring him more joy than happy clients telling him how much they enjoy their Costa Rican Vacation Home.
In Marc's spare time he enjoys fishing the river and ocean, eating good food, and spending time with his wife and 5 dogs.
