Wine Country Patio

The Wine Country Patio is under construction! A new 20' X 16' covered patio for alfresco dining and those warm evening wine tasting parties along w/ a bocci ball court at the lowest patio level.
The mid-level patio will include a 4'-0" tall, rusted-wire gabion retaining wall with a gas fire pit built into the gabion wall. A gabion (from Italian gabbione meaning "big cage") is a cylinder, or cage filled with rocks, concrete, or sometimes sand and soil.

Davtian Residence

The Davtian Residence is making headway! It will be a 2-story contemporary home located in Las Ventanas Ranch in Arroyo Grande, Ca. The house will be approximately 4,800 sq. ft. and is striving to be a net-zero energy home. Height restrictions and site limitations played a significant part in the design of this house.The owner wanted the house to take advantage of the views and outdoor spaces. The construction photos show how some of those views will be framed and elevations.
