Excellent fountain, where was the basin purchased and is the fountain bottom painted black?

The basin is not available for purchase and was a custom installed element specific to this project. It is built with a gunite base and a plastered basin much like a swimming pool would be constructed.

The white flowers that are growing in the foreground are White Mandevilla "Sun Parasol". They are supported by a decorative iron fence that is nearly obscured in the summer months when this plant is at its peak.

6. Center courtyard with fountain. Reminiscent of the California Spanish-style missions, this formal courtyard is located in the middle of a compound and features a prominent fountain.

Covered walkway, full length windows. Extend porch roof of 'walkway' to create large eating area, off of the kitchen/dining. Space opposite of walkway to be open to outside.

I like the steps and the type of open access from the courtyard to the porch. The windows and door seen on the other side can be used for the backside of the covered porch to secure the court yard.
