About Us

Our Construction Company

Monteith Construction Services Ltd is a Canadian home builder who is also registered in Nicaragua. Because of our experience in Nicaragua, and the fact that we believe this country is one of the most attractive places to retire, we are now offering a variety of services to American and Canadian clients who wish to relocate to Nicaragua. We are also happy to help any client from any location around the world.

We are affiliated with OK Solar Homes, a Canadian-based family-run business which specializes in energy efficient building construction and renewable energy systems, so we would be happy to build a wonderfully designed solar home for you in Nicaragua.

Rob Monteith, President of Monteith Construction Services, and Okanagan Solar Homes, got involved in Nicaragua in 2006 through a friend, a medical doctor who was helping to get an orphanage built, to support victims of hurricane Mitch. A container of construction materials was donated and it was an adventure dealing with customs at the Port of Corinto. Since the first trip, Rob has returned numerous times every year and has been involved in helping to build schools, churches, commercial structures, homes and energy systems.

In 2008 five Nicaraguan men spent two years in Canada under the foreign worker program, where they worked in construction.These same men now form the nucleus of NicaraguaRelocation.Com, and are involved personally in making the experience a positive one for our clients.

Our Relocation Tour Company

Monteith Construction has established an affiliated business, NicaraguaRelocation.com, which offers tours around Nicaragua to Americans and Canadians who are considering retiring in Nicaragua to enjoy the low cost of living yet exceptionaly wonderful lifestyle.

Once a person has decided to move to Nicaragua, they are encouraged to either buy an existing home or build a new home. If they wish to build a new home, Monteith Construction Services will be happy to help them every step of the way. Nicaragua encourages such relocations and offer many incentives to foreigners to do so. Click here to check out the laws governing retirees.
