The cost of transporting materials for building is expensive, due to the fact that like everything else it has to be brought by boat (once a year) or flown in. There are only a few construction companies in town, land is leased and new leases are done by lottery. It is not an option for many people to buy. The territorial government, in an effort to get employees to purchase homes and not live in subsidized government apartments, converted several apartment complexes into condos and we were approved to buy one.

|Look at the great sofa included in our living room/dining room|
|Upstairs hallway complete with more "vomit camo" and floating "boob lights"|
|Master bedroom-nothing too offensive|
