New Pueblo Sacbe lot owner!

I have recently bought a lot in Pueblo Sacbe and am very excited with the project. Any advise as how to start the process of building? How and where do you find the right people to manage this?
I understand that it is advisable to drill for the possibility of a cenote underneath or unstable ground? who does that?
Pueblo Sacbe is such a magical place and I am looking forward to many years building a new life. Thank you for any advice that you can give!

Hi Neli, welcome to our community! Which lot did you buy? There are many ways to answer your "start the process" questions, depending on the scope of your goals. I really recommend visiting with a wide range of the people here who have been down that path. I assure you that there is a wealth of opinions and approaches to building, since SacBe attracts such diverse and creative characters. When you are in the area, be sure to contact me or any of the other owners in this forum and we can introduce you to your new neighbors. I hope to see you soon!

Ok, mystery solved. And my previous post still applies. As for my own version of building opinions, there are two approaches . . .
Bribe me with Babe's Mojitos or cut a deal with me to build a home using the model, team, and tooling I am starting on my own lot this month.

Hi Neli, Welcome to Sacbe. We are going to be right there with you as we plan to build on our lot next year. Where is your lot? We have the lot next store to Bills old house. Hi Bill!! I'll be glad to bribe you with some Babes mojitos to get some building ideas. Looking forward to seeing you in May. Neli (Helga) when will you be in town?
Again, welcome to Sacbe!

Thanks Doris....the lot is right beside Ted's (sorry,i don't remember the number).
I was hoping to be there now but work keeps me in snowy Toronto! I will be aiming for May now as well! I am sure we will meet as we are now neighbours!
Thanks for the warm welcome!

hi,
flowerBill here. Welcome to Sacbe. If you're looking for palapa type construction or similar I'd say Nehemias is your man. He's running the building at our place and at Bill's. The link to our photos is at the end of the construction topics thread.
