The final touches are starting to show!

Our home is intended to look like a native pueblo ("Origins Pueblo"). The sculpting of the exterior walls is nearly complete, and the final color has been applied to many areas. The subtle color differences in different part of the house are to evoke a pueblo that has gone through multiple stages of organic growth.

What do you think? (OK, It will look better without the scaffolding and supplies in the foreground.)

Exterior is taking shape!

Soon, you may be warmed by a fire!

Inside, tile and rock are being applied to several rooms.

Here is a view of the Great Room fireplace.

Spring has arrived, but February first brought a wet storm that blanketed the Black Hills overlooking Cottonwood. Here is a view from our driveway, looking southwest:

It is so beautiful here!!!
