Herrera House

This family has 5 children and lived in a two bedroom cellar with pieces of old plywood laid on top for a roof.  Whenever it rained, water seeped in through the walls and through the roof.  They wanted us to build the main floor for them, but we discovered the cellar walls would not support a structure. Starting just behind the cellar we built a new three bedroom house and then poured a concrete roof over the existing cellar.  Now everyone has a warm, dry place to sleep, and mom and dad finally have their own bedroom. Click on any picture for expanded detail.
