What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

The home is made of natural materials and is mostly adobe brick and wood with lots of windows and ventilation. The floors are all brick on sand so it feels like you're walking on earth. The ceilings are all wood so the house has a warm, cabin feeling. Solar hot water and electric provide most of the energy needs. Rain water collection cisterns support the large organic vegetable garden. The brand new chicken coop has never been used. Mature shade trees surround the house. Ceiling fans provide low cost cooling. No VOC paints used and only natural cleaning supplies.


Neighborhood Description

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. Each home is on an acre. The houses vary in size but are all southwest in style. In the mornings and evenings you see a lot of people out walking, jogging, and biking. There are great hiking trails and parks close by.
