I am an expat from Michigan USA living on the Bay Island of Utila, Honduras for the past 14 years. My interests are in landscape design, gardening, interior decorating, stained glass, and house design. However, I have not studied Architecture. My background study was in orthopedic medicine as a PA. On Utila, I have designed and supervised the construction of 2 places I had built. 1. A 3 story New Orleans style Apartment/ restaurant business 2. A Moorish Style castle inspired by the architectural designs of the Spanish Architect Antoni Gaudi. The New Orleans structure is of wood and the castle is constructed of cement. Both designs are unique and extremely different from one another.
