A Breath of Fresh Air: Natural Materials Help Create a New Mexico Home

A husband-wife designer-builder team relies on natural materials and a tradition of craftsmanship to create their healthy New Mexico home.

Robert likes to give his homes “a good hat and a good pair of shoes.” In this case, a four-foot roof overhang and stone wainscoting work together to protect the natural wall system from the elements. Rainwater is collected from the roof and stored in cisterns for Paula’s vegetable garden.
