Casa Amarilla came about when frequent visitors Jacek and Ivona found their piece of land in the area and decided they want too build a house. They came to see our house and when they left they asked if I could build them one just like it. I thought they meant a nice solid house of yet-to-be-determined design. But no, they meany exactly the same. So, I did, but there ended up being a few modifications. I have to say after living in our house for over 2 years now, it is a great design. I adapted it for Nicaragua life from a Frank Lloyd Wright floor plan that I liked (see post on designing our house for details).
They wanted 11′ instead of 10′ walls, a steeper roof pitch and we enlarged the office to be a complete bedroom with double doors. Some features of the kitchen and baths are customized and of course the colors and tiles are quite different. It took about a year from November 2014 till 2015 and came out great.
