On The Sea of Cortez

A memoir describing three years of experiences building a house in southern Baja California, Mexico, on the Sea of Cortez.
This is the story of the dream and vision, punctuated with the reality of designing, constructing and negotiating the legal, cultural, and psychological issues of building "La Querencia" (the place that my heart yearns for). It is at once a memoir and a practical guide for anyone considering building in Mexico, or any foreign country.

Mr. Pomeroy practiced architecture for more than 40 years, managing his own design firm. His design work has been published in professional journals, and has received over 100 awards for design excellence. He has taught architecture and urban design in university. Mr. Pomeroy has developed commercial and residential projects and was a licensed contractor.
