About our home

We were pioneers in the "back to adobe" building movement in the late 70"s and all of our houses represent the vernacular style of building found in Oaxaca before modern building construction took over.Our homes are represented in various design books . San Felipe is a village on the outskirts of Oaxaca near the San Felipe mountain where the people have farmed their corn and brought wood down from the mountain to make the best tortillas on the "comal" to supply to the City of Oaxaca. We have a compound of 5 homes each with careful detail to the use of natural and local materials.

  3. We were the first couple to begin to recover a return to building adobe in Oaxaca our houses have been examples for other people to admire and also choose to build with adobe instead of cement block and brick as was the trend when we arrived. Our homes reflect this deep respect for vernacular design and its practicality.
