Moroccan houses in Essaouria province are built with a concrete skeleton made of reinforced concrete. The areas in between the concrete pillars are filled in with either limestone or concrete blocks. The walls are faced with concrete, the roofs are poured concrete. the door are steel with substantial locks. So what you have is a very ugly but very solid building. It is a traditional design, it look more like a defensive type structure, maybe a through back to raiding Berber tribes days.
The traditional color of the house is white ( white wash made from the local lime stone ) with blue trim, blue is every where doors, shutters, wood trim and taxis cabs.
In this particular house the front door opens into a small room with a Moroccan couch. This room goes into a small courtyard, ever house I have been in has a courtyard. The courtyard is open to the atmosphere, some can be quite large, big enough to have full grown trees and gardens.
This one is small, at one end are two doors, one to the bath room and one to the kitchen. Along the side of the courtyard is the “salon” usually the largest room of the house. These salons again can be quite large, the house we stayed at in Oulad Arbya had a salon that had to be forty feet long. This one is small, it has two doors ( blue ) and one window ( blue trim).
I think all the pictures are self explanatory, I left out the bathroom picture, I wanted to leave the Turkish toilet a mystery ( It is really not a big deal after the first use ).
