Building a Home

Stacks Image 14142
New migrants can design and build the home of their dreams on Pitcairn if they want to.
It takes some planning to get the right materials on island at the right stages of the build but it can most certainly be done.

Traditionally homes are built by homeowners themselves with the help and/or paid assistance of local trades people. Many Pitcairners are well skilled at carpentry, electrical work, plumbing, painting and decorating. Building and planning permissions are very straight forward and there is a first home, freight free, loan available.
