Send me your email and I will send you some pics of the work. Our builder has been great and I thoroughly recommend him. He is a brit who has lived in Spain for the last five years or so...he also bought thrpugh finca casa aragon and lives on his land all year round. I can introduce you if you like his work.
Regards,
Joe

Thanks for the reply, is this builder a registered Spanish builder as I have found out if you just use a mate you can not get a habitation licence, any thoughts

Yes he is registered builder.. as far as I am aware you can do work yourself and get habitation licence as long as you get a proper project using an architect and meet all building regs. I may be wrong as this is just what I have worked out from the architect but I do not speak spanish and rely on google translate to do the paperwork. Might be worth consulting a solicitor to be sure.

Finca in Maella
 
Hi All

I'm on the verge of purchasing a finca just outside of Maella through finca casa aragon and would be really grateful for any advice/warnings/thoughts. Thanks in advance :)

Doing it oneself
 
Hi All, I am looking to purchase a Finca in Aragon, a tad North of you; to the North of Barbastro. I am more than capable of doing all the renovation work myself. My question is; is one allowed to do so? Thanks.

Roble,
Many thanks. Excellent info. and to the point. Just what I needed to hear.

Hi Roble, Will take up your offer once I am sorted and settled. I aim to live in the Campo and, like yourself, I aim to live off grid and be self sufficient. Thanks.
Nogard.

Hi, we keep the 4 x 4 on the property. We fly into wherever, Barcelona or Reus depending on prices schedule etc. We also drive down from St Malo, only 12 hours. Any advice needed please feel free. We all need to get together sometime this year!

best

Hi Maria, Would you be so kind as to inform me of the route you take, when driving from St. Malo. Thanks.
Nogard.
