Downstairs there's a large enclosed beach shower and sitting area with hot and cold water. It is very private and has plenty of hanging space for wetsuits and towels.

There is ample storage for kayaks, surfboards, fishing gear, and vehicles. The second garage is a workshop for tools and a small car.
The sellers started building this San Juanico house in 2008. It is a Pueblo Revival style of their design to fit their needs. It sits on 2ea 20x30m township lots, with the house on one lot and the other left as yard space. The survey further indicates the lots are 20.85 x 36m, and the area totals 1440 square meters. (16048 sq feet) The house is oriented to block the prevailing winds facing the bay and the mountains and is situated to take full advantage of the sun for our solar system.
The house sits on large steel reinforced footings with concrete block stem walls. It is constructed of Tridipanel Structural Foam Panel and plastered with 1.5 inches of cement plaster on each side. This is also steel reinforced as per specs from Tridipanel Engineers.
Because of the 5-inch foam panel, the house is super insulated. It stays cool in the summer heat and heats up very quickly with our gas-log propane stove during those cold spring nights. The windows are all thermopane to help this.
The utilities included are a 4kw solar system with 8 Concord AGM batteries backed up by a 3kw Honda generator housed in a brick shed at the bottom of the property away from the house.
There are 6 Kyocera 185-watt solar panels on the roof. There are 1200 gallons of water storage in 2 Tinacos fed by the town water system. It is hooked to a 120v water pressure system, including a large pressure tank. The propane gas system has a stand-alone large tank that fires the cookstove/oven, a propane gas log heat stove, which is thermostat controlled, and two water heaters (one for each bathroom), so there is no waiting for hot water.
The septic system consists of primary and secondary fermentation tanks down to an infiltrator leach system at the bottom of the property.
The yard is fenced, and the landscaping consists primarily of desert flora, all on a drip irrigation system for easy maintenance. There is a drive-thru RV space on the property with sewer and water hookups.
