Architecturally pleasing, the contemporary home utilizes space in a fresh, interesting way. Large windows showcase expansive desert views effectively pulling the outside in. Emerging as a hot southwestern design trend, contemporary custom homes captivate, transcending the Arizona landscape in a slightly unexpected way. Simple luxury at its finest.

Adobe bricks (mud bricks) are made of earth with a fairly high clay content and straw. If produced manually the earth mix is cast in open moulds onto the ground and then left to dry out. Adobe bricks are only sun-dried, not kiln-fired. When used for construction they are laid up into a wall using an earth mortar.
