Building a Natural Earthen Shelter

Building a Natural Earthen Shelter

If you’ve ever wanted to live in a home that has the look and feel of actually being “one” with the earth – this Earthen Shelter design is perfect. The adobe texture very much has that southwest appeal and could easily lend itself to a piece of land on a desert mountain top or nestled up against a the saguaro’s of the Arizona/New Mexico southwest.

Creative window placement invites natural light into almost all areas of this design. Inside you will find a warm and cozy feel that is a cross between a rustic log cabin and a quaint adobe home of the Native American pueblos. Perfect for a weekend retreat or as a single family home. The living area reveals a vaulted ceiling design with wood open beam supports. A upper loft area with multiple tiny rounded corned window designs make this a perfect space for an office or kids bedroom. French glass doors open off the home onto the patio making it a perfect spot for entertaining guests or sipping your morning coffee.

This Earthen Shelter home will definitely add a sense of living with the flow of the land to anyone’s living experience.
