What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

Outer walls are constructed with Millennium Blok (recycled Styrofoam and cement). Once erected and shaped their honeycomb channels are filled with cement. The walls are 12” thick and the R-factor is estimated at R-48. Passive solar room has taken advantage of the SW Colorado sun and was designed around maximum solar gain in winter, which during the day heats up tons of Thermal Mass built into the floor and back wall and returns it at night. Yet in the height of summer only the very early and late day sun enters this room due to the precise overhang above the windows. This house stays cool without air-conditioning in summer, and rarely needs the in-floor heat during winter on other than cloudy days.

Neighborhood Description

Located on the top of a knoll this home has beautiful 360 degrees and very little exposure to neighbors. They also have an additional 36 acres for sale.

Market Area
