    Just got back from the xmas with the folks on St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. Here, buildings are not taxed by the territorial government until they are "complete," so it has become common practice to leave construction unfinished for years or even generations, leading to the proliferation of these types of houses: flat roof, protruding rebar & conduits.


    • drums please, Fab?

      that's crazy!

      the government could require the building to be completed before occupation i suppose ..

      de-con lives on!

      same condition exists in the Middle East, and you see this situation very often in Lebanon.
