Our eaves (the lower edges of the roof that project beyond the walls) are made of solid stucco and there is no wood trim on the exterior of our homes to easily ignite. 



Our homes are built "slab on grade" meaning the foundation of concrete slab is set into the ground leaving no space between the ground and t…
