Does anyone have plans for this house? - I love it and would buy them instantly. I am getting ready to build a similar house in Mexico. Or are there plans online that show a general house plan?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The home is a modern interpretation of traditional Spanish hacienda architecture, with a true interior courtyard. "We observed what worked locally and thought hard about how the home would be used," Howell says. "It was a matter of listening, interpreting and making a simple bold statement." The courtyard and house were planned around two existing trees, and the courtyard is centered around an infinity pool fountain. "Now that there is water on the site, it has transformed from a very dry and arid landscape to one full of lush plants," Howell says.

Margaritas in Mexico party. This hacienda's courtyard is the perfect spot to enjoy local flavors.
