is anyone building their own house in Mexico?

i kind of suck at retirement, i can't just sit and read a book or go for long walks on the beach and all that BS, i need to keep busy.

in Thailand, i bought land (ok, technically my wife did) and built a house (with a team of about 20 workers) and we made a reasonable profit selling it several years later.

now i'm wondering about doing the same in Mexico, except if i did it again, i would probably take it very slow and try do all but the heavy lifting parts by myself. at least in Mexico, I understand i can own the land outright in my name if more and 100km from the coast, and even coastal property, there is a work around.

i wonder if anyone else on the forum has built their own place and your experiences.

i actually wrote a book about building my place in Thailand, here … &hl=en
