Abiquiu: Wall structure and roof trusses

Materials are predominantly local: adobe within a reinforced concrete structural frame, pumice for under-slab insulation, and rough-sawn douglas fir. The roof trusses are made of twin 2x10s flanking a steel strut and tension chord. Spanning increasing distances between straight and curved tie beams, the roof surface takes on a subtle warp.
