These photos show that there is no remodel project that is too big for us to design. This was a very old mud adobe structure with an interesting history of being a schoolhouse and possibly a stagecoach stop too. It sits on top of a hill on a beautiful piece of land in Tucson horse country. Our clients wanted it restored and included in the design of their new home which required new construction as well as restoration of the mud adobe building. You can see the condition of the old original mud structure which is now the central rooms of the completed home which was designed with new wings added to it.
Here are several photos of the restored and expanded exterior as it is now.
Here are interior “after” photos of the completed home today.
