Indio Villa
Old World Spanish Villa Hidden Away Behind The Private Gates Of One Of Indio's Few Remaining Large Equestrian Estate Lots

This Old World Spanish Mission Style Villa is roughly 13,000 gross square feet.  We  modeled this home around  the California San Juan Capistrano Mission, incorporating elements such as  floor plan and other design details. 

The long exterior arched walkways and breezeways form a protective "H" shape exterior front and rear courtyard.  These traditional courtyards naturally provide protection, security and shade from the outside world, front and back.  

We detailed the interior to match the exterior giving depth and thickness to all the wall elements. This home is warm, cozy and very livable.  Even with all the old world goodies shown, we still managed to hold down construction costs, this by relying structurally on open web truss designs (requiring very few laminated beams) and colored/textured concrete that added a unique look and is more durable than traditional clay floor tile.   

Our Energy Efficiency Makes It Cheap To Keep
The interior dwelling space has our top of the line energy designed system.  Included are many separate high efficiency forced air cooling systems.  Each air conditioner can be  zoned into 2 or more cooling areas. This design allows us to create up to 8 or more individually timed and thermostatically controlled heating or cooling zones. This is state-of-the-art in utility management.

The owners can selectively cool only the portions of the home their family resides in by setting the thermostats manually or by timer. Example; during the night, they can choose to only cool the Master Bedroom Suite and the small walk area to the Bathroom Suite. Since no one is ever in all the rooms at the same time. Why cool all the rooms all the time?  The thermal mass contained in the large floor areas substantially reduces the peak energy load needed to cool the home during the afternoon. The hidden structural open web wood truss above the exposed big timber wood beams ceilings allows for the use of extreme fiberglass insulated thickness-values within the ceiling cavity. This helps reduce energy costs much further than minimum code requirements. Very cost effective. way.    

Reducing Carbon Footprints Before It Was Trendy
Our tradition of thoughtful heating and cooling design helps large home clients pay a  small home electric utility bills. We have been doing this type of energy saving design long before it was trendy or even required to do so by recent code. Our designs have not only reduced the "carbon footprint" of our homes, but have also protected our clients from having to pay high summer utility bills.
