What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

This home was built to live in the mountains of Colorado! Built as a hybrid post & beam structure to accommodate the local Steamboat snow load. The smart design of this home also includes an overhanging roof that protects the straw-bale walls from inclement weather. Straw-bale walls mean this home is incredibly well insulated and will save you money year after year, since the walls are so thick; the home is cool in the summer and warm in the winter!  Since straw-bales are an agricultural by-product, this home offers a small carbon footprint. 

Property Description

This home has the versatility to live like a duplex with one floor or the other to be rented out long-term/ short-term, or to be opened up and used for single-family living. This green build has R-46 walls, in-floor heat, maple & cherry hardwood floors along with plaster walls & ceilings throughout. Lower level includes 2 BD, 1 BA and open living/dining area that flows seamlessly into a sparkling kitchen marked by Saltillo floors & concrete countertops. Upstairs includes 1 BD, 1 BA & a separate kitchen and living-room. This home has light & bright windows that beckon the outdoors in- each window is strategically placed as a frame to a stunning landscape or view that offers the reminder to stop & breathe in the good things in life. Upstairs includes ‘sprung’ wood floors that radiate warmth that continues throughout the home via naturally inspired finishes, delicately balancing bright walls, natural light & architectural elements. Other features include wood burning stove, cozy reading nook, possible yoga space, (or home office !) & deck to enjoy your morning coffee while watching the Yampa River & waving hello to the moose, otters & other furry neighbors who find the same peaceful refuge here. Step outside to a lush fenced surrounding yard with mature trees & Sarvis Berry bushes, or walk 50 paces out your back door to spend a morning casting your fly on the 101 ft of river frontage, or take a stroll to downtown Steamboat with easy access to the ‘core trail’, boutique shopping and divine local restaurants. Just across the road is Emerald Mountain with extensive trail systems & nearby is Howelson Hill. This home also has a detached, heated 1 car garage plus carport as well as a very sweet artist’s studio/workshop/office with electric! See video of home at
