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.

This home is an adobe home built in 1925. I took the old steel 1950's panel windows out. I Would like to add a wooden trim on the outside. Something similar to the photo. A lot of the the homes in Santa Fe, NM have this type of window trim.

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