The building was made with adobe faced with brick, and was cemented with lime made from seashells. The quadrangle was made surrounded with tile. The priest's quarters were not big. They were made like the rest of the rest of the buildings. The Indian's quarters were very far away from the mission. They probably had to walk while to breakfast! There were four separate buildings each about the size of the entire priest's quarters. There were twenty two archways that led into the church.  They were made with strong adobe. The fields, grounds, and gardens were fertile lands that supported 13,000 livestock including sheep and cows. it made enough food to give some to the Santa Barbara presidio. 450 of the people there were the workers. The reason there was so many and the padres were eager to gather them was because the land was so vast. The outbuildings were not as stable and strong, it was more like a long shack.
