    House Style Notes

Spanish Colonial Revival     

Contemporary massing enshrouds this new Spanish Colonial Revival styled home. Experimentation with many window treatments in the style: timber lintel, wood-plank shutters, wrought-ironwork, plain and projecting casement. The primary materials of the style: plastered walls and clay tile roofing, are set off by nicely visible rafter tails despite the contemporary requirement for gutters. The wider eaves allow for this expression of the style that was more typical of Northern California homes due to the higher annual rainfall amounts. The arched entry is an important cue to the many-arched structures ubiquitous to the style. A note on the first paint color used: it would be considered almost a "brilliant" white by contemporary standards but is actually rather correct to early Spanish Colonial architecture. The most common way to protect plastered walls was with a "white-wash" or a mixture composed heavily of slaked lime. The oxidation of the lime left a chalky white appearance over time. Sometimes, cow dung was used to take the brilliance out a little and darken the white color. But for cement plastered walls, the lime-based mixture is still considered one of the best protections from the elements because of its absorptive qualities and chemical reaction with the substrate. It requires more frequent "washings" but is simple and inexpensive.
