Architects and contractors are often confronted with a client who wants a large home with many luxury features, but whose budget doesn't stretch to cover all these desirable things. Tilt-up concrete construction proved the answer for a house in Ventura, CA. The house has 3,600 square feet of living space which includes 4 bedrooms, 2 1 /2 baths, family room and recreation room. The cost per square foot was $11.09. In the Ventura area the standard architecturally designed home is about $15 per square foot. A 4 foot module was used as the basic element, extending to glass panels in bedrooms and facade, two 4 foot modules for the beams, and even for the decorative screen along the bedroom wing. The 13 tilt-up walls ranged in size from the 20 by 23 foot living room wall (weighing 23 tons) to three 4 by 11 foot walls for the bedroom wing.
