Property Description

We are selling our beautiful chemical-free home and want to give the MCS/EI community the first look before we market it locally. We built this home 15 years ago when I was extremely chemically sensitive as well as EMF sensitive.rnrnAs you can read in the description below we took all the measures we knew to make this a safe home for me. It has worked out beautifully and I have recovered almost completely. I believe in large part it is due to the environment I've enjoyed in this home.rnrnThis is a very gently used home and still looks like new. My husband and I are the ones who live here. It has been cleaned only with non-toxic products and has never been exposed to pets or smoking.rnrnOur home is located in historic Oregon City, End of the Oregon Trail. It is 2700 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, plus den on a 10,000 square foot lot. It is basically a non-traffic area as it is located at the end of a dead-end street in a quiet, friendly neighborhood.rnrnFor the chemically and environmentally challenged person it is an oasis with the following features:rn• Floors are wool carpet and ceramic tilern• No flakeboard or particle board used in constructionrn• Formaldehyde-free insulation throughoutrn• Cabinet interiors made of wheatboard (no glues to outgas)rn• Whole-house, 6-stage water filter (with UV light) for the purest waterrn• Energy Star rated homern• HVAC system has multi-stage filtration, with HEPA filter and UV light for the purest air rn• Rigid air ducting to facilitate cleaning to eliminate allergensrn• Continuous ventilation and filtrationrn• Three intake registers on main floor to keep the air movingrn• No pets or smoking everrn• Always cleaned with non-toxic productsrn• Hardwired burglar alarm systemrn• Circuits in master bedroom and kitchen can be turned off remotely for those who want additional EMF mitigationrn• Central vacuum system throughout housern• Low-VOC paint throughoutrnrnUpstairs is an independent living space with a private entrance.
