Cost of renovation in Hawaii vs. Mainland?

Linda from San Diego asks:

Oahu has alot of older homes . If I purchase one, is the cost of renovation construction similar to mainland or significantly more. Single wall vs double wall. Termites? Insurance? The important stuff to be sure to know before buying that’s specific to the island.
