Building the Vaulted Roof

 

This house is built similar to Moroccan architecture.  Simone Swan (Presidio) brought the idea to the Big Bend area in hopes of teaching the Mexicans how to build adobe houses affordably and with the few resources they had.  The vault was built by Mauro (Ojinaga) and Jesusita (Presidio).  They are now masters at building these type roofs.
