What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?
As a geodesic dome home, it is very energy efficient (natural gas forced air) with wood burning stove. The main floor is open to the upstairs as well as having an opening in the dining area to the landing, that allows for 2 floor efficient air/heat circulation with the overhead fan. There is extensive passive solar window exposure that allows for heat gain in the winter. The sunroom opens into the greatroom, providing significant additional passive solar gain in the winter, and can be kept cool in summer through windows and screens. The light in the home is awesome and is a plant lover's paradise. The house is on well water with the Denver aquifer (delicious), our location gets 300 days of sunshine a year, has lovely clean high country mountain air, and is at 7500 ft. altitude. There are minimal concerns with mold and mildew, due to an arid climate. The 5 acres are naturally landscaped around the house, with an aspen grove and beautiful mature pines.
