The home is located on what is depicted by "Lot #1" on this Google Earth picture. The lot is 35 feet wide by 110 feet long for a total of 3850 square feet or 350 square meters.
The foundation is anchored into the bedrock of the lot. Notice the color change from where the dirt ends and solid bedrock begins. Workers had to cut almost five feet into the bedrock.
Vista from Lot
The vista from this lot is one of the most spectacular views of the Baja peninsula.
Concrete blocks are reinforced with poured cement and rebar in every other channel. The lower level contains the master bedroom and bath and first guest bedroom and guest bath.
Two layers of #8 rebar and 5 inches of hydraulic concrete (250 f'c (lbs per square foot)) make up the fabric of all floors and ceilings of the structure making it indestructible. Due to the high cost of materials, very few builders use this much rebar and such a high concentration of concrete in their construction.
Walls and Beams
A 35 foot long "I beam" is anchored to the mid-columns to allow for the expansive living area and kitchen.
