Adobe Style House Plans

Adobe house plans are modeled on the pueblos of the American Indians who originally populated the southwest.

Adobe style, also known as Pueblo Revival, is characterized by massive stucco walls with rounded edges and exposed timber beams and supports. The overall effect is one of a rustic home in which the walls have been molded and the timbers hewn by hand. Adobe house plans are typically one or two stories; upper stories may be set back like the pueblos of their ancestors. The thickness of the walls is evident in the deep-set windows, which are often framed by wooden lintels. The walls typically rise higher than the roof, which is supported by wooden beams whose ends extend through the wall. The beam ends are called vigas and are a characteristic feature of Adobe home designs. Rough-hewn timbers may also show up as porch columns inside or outside of the home.

Another common feature of Adobe or Pueblo house plans is the beehive fireplace or kiva, built into corners of interior rooms or exterior courtyards or terraces. Adobe floor plans are usually oriented inward around a central courtyard. Floors are composed of cool stone, tile, or concrete. Eco-friendly and comfortable with their closed patios, flat roofs, and organic walls, the Adobe or Pueblo home plans are well-suited for the dry climates of the Southwest.
