Southwestern home plans
Southwestern home plans are typically one story with flat roofs, covered porches, and round log ceiling beams and reflect a rich history of Colonial Spanish and Native American architecture. Homes built in the Southwestern home plans frequently have overhangs or trellises to provide shade from the desert sun on their stucco or stone walls.
Stick construction probably need a cooling system, however a well-designed adobe home won’t. A rich fusion of heritage, comfort, and elegance is produced by combining adobe with natural plasters, wood ceilings, exposed exterior beams, and other traditional finishes.
- usually one-story, low-slung designs
- little overhang, flat or low-pitched roof,
- Exteriors with small, randomly placed windows and an asymmetrical design
This collection might comprise a range of designs created by devu homes, ones that have been successful there, or ones that just visually invoke the locale. Please be aware that some sites can call for the implementation of local codes or particular engineering requirements. Make sure to inquire about the requirements in your area with your contractor or the local building authority.

For instance, some plans might have flat roofs and stucco finishes, while others might have brick and flagstone for the outside finishing touches.

Other exterior characteristics could or might not include.
