Larry and Jack Weir – Weir Brothers Construction – were the most prominent adobe home builders in Southern California, with more than 200 homes to their credit. Their first adobe house was built in 1948, in Encinitas; the last Weir Bros. adobe home was built in 1987 for former Chargers quarterback Dan Fouts in Rancho Santa Fe. Larry’s design/builds were known to be the more whimsical and artistic, with rounded walls, wagon-wheel elements and interesting uses of iron, terrazzo and tile.
