HISTORIC HOME PLANS
SOUTHWEST STYLE HOME PLANS
In the American Southwest, home style has long gone its own way. The southwestern home hugs the ground. With walls of adobe or stucco and roofs of red tile, the southwest style home blocks out the harsh desert sun. Often centered around courtyards with small fountains, southwest style homes, as simple as they are, can be extremely comfortable. In gentler climates such as coastal California, southwest style homes open out, through patios, taking in the ocean views and sea breezes.
