Pumice-Crete Block Home-Belen, NM

19 Items

This pumice-crete block, single story house we worked on in Belen, New Mexico, south of Albuquerque, has three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and an art studio, for a total of 2300 sq. ft. We picked up the project from a previous contractor who had difficulties with the complexity of the design. The clay was harvested from the arroyo on the land for the earthen plasters and poured adobe floors, which have radiant in-floor heat. Inside are low VOC paints for healthy home touches and recycled items wherever possible.
