A Brief Story of a FL-ECOhome Designer:


It began in an ancient North Italian University City (that since 1492!)...eventual immigration to the wonderful South Bronx… later transplanting to a terrific SE FL Beach Town in 1967…



…after a brief spell serving in the ranks of SE FL’s Beach-Boy & Yippee Militias it was off enjoy the US Army in Germany as an 82C. The German sensibilities, and beers, were inspiring.



 After an Honorable Discharge, and loving Graphics, Building, and Architecture, I soon interned with a wise old German Architect in Palm Beach and there learned about coastal mansions, condos, office buildings. Very-near where (now) Pres. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago sat vacant for decades.



The region was booming, and the money was great! My resume’s extensive, and includes a pink White House in Boca Raton, FL. Haa. There IBM first-built their PC (sure to win ya a bar-bet!). My first CAD-computer was a hand-me-down from NASA in ‘83 and awfully-cool but useless!



The term “ECOhome” is one used by HPD (me) since Design/Building its first in SE FL (1980). Helping create Mansions for the Rich-n-Famous was “Easy”, but designing small FL-SMART Homes that REALLY-worked was HARD!

Tried Creating a South FL ECO-community:

Partnered in 1990 with an

existing Riverside Development start-up in Lee County, FL in hopes of making it a pioneering South FL GREEN Community. It failed at being that, but continues as a very-low-Fees HOA.


The LESSON: preparing for a pioneering BIG IDEA is more-Vital towards its Success than its actual operation later. Sighhh, if only….
