El Cemento Uno House is the Ultimate Minimalist Desert Oasis

El Cemento Uno House

Amid the rugged and sparse landscape of Joshua Tree sits the El Cemento Uno House. The 1,674 square foot retreat is set on five acres of land, nestled within a boulder field where the structure appears to almost float above the natural rock formations. The rectangular building is constructed of RSG 3-D, a panel system consisting of a polystyrene core sandwiched between steel wire grids, which is then covered in concrete. The result is a fireproof and earthquake-resistant shell that’s also energy-efficient – perfect for the extremes of the desert. The home is up for sale now for $1.7M. With two master suites and an extra powder room, it makes for a perfect weekend getaway or vacation rental property.
