Mexican Architecture

As you may know, I love Mexican architecture.  I plan to have a home in MX so I have been collecting great ideas.  I thought I would share a few.

This is the gate to my lot in Baja.  I can't wait to use some of my ideas for my Abuela casa.

This is call a Kiva.  It is just the right size for the few cool nights that a little extra heat could be used.  And how cute it is!  I like the style of the one below too. Would make a nice sitting area.


Isn't this a fabulous arched courtyard
gate.It is tile mosaic and is at the Jill Logan Galerira in Todos Santos Mexico. She has really great art there too.

I am not wild about the fountain but I really like the colorful tile floor.

I love the outdoor stairway to the roof.  I would like to have a roof top art studio.

I really like the out side detail of the lattilla awning and the wood vegas.

 I like the ceiling detail with the vegas and the wood insets (I forgot what they are called).  If you know let me know too.

I really like the color of this exterior.

  Isn't this beautiful.
 Ceiling detail in kitchen of home my son is currently building. The top of the brick dome has little windows that let it light. (not seen in photo)
 Exterior wall surrounding whole home.
 Outdoor pizza oven.  Cooks great chicken too.!
 Interior of pallapa roof system in home my son is currently building.  Water tight.
Project under construction still.  Note all the molding detail around the round window & arch entry.  Curved bar is waiting for a wood counter & all the cabs.

Do you need a builder in the Baja?

My son lives in Pescadaro (8 miles south of Todos Santos and about 45 min north of Cabo San Lucas on the Pacific side.) He is a master craftsman and builds everything from Cabs to fine furniture. He builds homes in MX and will be building mine for me when I get to do it.  If you need a home built or cabinets or custom finish work you can contact me & I will get you connected with him and his crew..  He has a full shop and is able to take on most any size job.
