I am searching for a local architect to draw up some plans for a villa from my rough draft. Any suggestions or recommendations. Thanks for your help.

Vicky Nelder is one of the islands premier architect/designers. She has done many beautiful homes and resorts over 15+ years including Mata Chica. She has just completed my home design. Incredible work really.

Ersel Martinez, also is the building inspector for San Pedro.

If he designs it, I bet it gets approved since he is the inspector.

He is also a good and honest person. Spoken from personal experience.

You can reach him at the town hall or office or whatever the proper local name there is for what we in the US call City Hall.

Mr. Martinez is a draftsman, not an architect, meaning, he can't stamp/sign the plans. Can't be the designer and then the bldg inspector for the same project anyway. Doesn't work like that, not even in Belize.

"HAHAHA

You'd let a draftsman that is also the bldg inspector design your home that's going to be worth several hundred thousand $s?

This is not to knock Mr. Martinez by the way, he is a reputable draftsman used and recommended by Belize architects and engineers. And, his father is a reputable builder.

Ersel designed and drafted my sea wall and a 15 x 15 concrete palapa. His father built them for me.

And yes, I will also use both of them when I design and build my home there that will be worth several hundred thousand of dollars.

I see no conflict of interest nor anything unethical with using Ersel as the designer and draftsman when he is also the building inspector. He does his design and drafting work as a side job unrelated to his day job.

I personally will vouch for the quality of work and reasonable prices given to me by both Ersel Martinez and his father Magda Martinez. Both are honest hard working men who I personally have used and will continue to use in the future as they have both earned my respect and trust.
