Rustic Adobe

The inherent rugged nature of adobe both complements and contrasts beautifully with its desert surroundings. Tasteful current finishes delight the senses with a slightly unexpected flair. A constant reminder of the magic of the desert, rustic adobe is truly living in history.

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.
