Custom property in Cyprus

Completed custom property in CyprusMany buyers are forsaking the developers and building custom properties designed and built to their own individual requirements.

They first buy land and then have their new home designed by an architect and built by a registered contractor. In this gallery you'll find a photographic diary of the building of my custom home from start to finish.

Built of concrete and brick, I hope this these will give you a better appreciation of the way Cyprus properties should be built. Hopefully, they'll give you look out for when inspecting your potential new home.

I've organised the photos to show the different phases of construction. Click on the menu to the left, or any of the photos below, to go to the appropriate gallery.
