exterior rustic-exterior


The design objective for this six acre ocean view parcel in Montecito was to create a literal replication of an 1800's California hacienda. Four adobe structures define the central courtyard while secondary terraces and walled gardens expand the living areas towards the views and morning light. Simple, rustic details and traditional, handmade materials evoke a lifestyle of a distant era.

I see you respected the style by not using rain gutters. All the water comes straight down? or you collected somehow before it does?

It falls into the courtyard and then into surface drains. On the back side, it falls into a gravel trench with a drain at the bottom.

Can you please advise, if possible, how I can convert my white trimmed window frame to look more like wood. T

Try cedar casing. Can wire brush to add texture. Then paint to match window or new accent color

Grown Solutions
Retrofit the window with 1" wide reclaimed wood boards for the inside and then add 1"x6" boards over the existing top wood trim and then over existing brick trim on the other 3 sides. What a beautiful exterior in the picture. Some Hanging Garden Trellises would look great hung from the porch beams.
