    Default A rustic home in Ecuador

    This rustic home -- made from local bamboo, hardwood, river rock and tile -- was built two years ago by a local architect.

    no. the house itself might have potential as some kind of country retreat but the decorating sucks ass and what's with the crucifixes above all the beds?

    The space is warm and inviting and the scenery and view are great. Most of the decorating is meh.

    I think it was a good use of local materials. Looks like it belongs in Ecuador. As far as the crucifixes-most Catholics have them over the beds.

    It's a Catholic thing. Hell, my mom has a crucifix of some sort in every room in her house. Crazy Catholics.

    Anyway....
    The house is just too dark for my taste. Blech.

    lots of potential, but ditch the cliché woven rug indian crap. Seriously. You already live in freaking Ecuador, you don't need to invite it in.

    Looks cozy, but I think it needs to be lighted better. Maybe paint the wood a light color, something that didn't make it look so tree-house like.

    The lighting is nice, but the place is still unpleasant looking.

    Love the house and the view, hate the decor.

    I really like it, both inside and out. Would 'brighten it up' a bit, but the 'basic bones' both inside and out are fantastic. I want it, and I want it

    Ecuador is earthquake country though..and that thing looks like it would completely come apart in a major shake..right down the slope.
