What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?

We believe durability, energy efficiency and a healthy indoor environment are the cornerstones of green building. This home was designed and built to optimize those criteria.

- Our home will last for hundreds of years. It was engineered to withstand the high snow and seismic loads of the Tetons and it was built by craftsmen.

- Passive solar orientation and careful placement of glazing and thermal mass keep the home naturally warm in winter and cool in summer.

- Our home is built primarily with reclaimed wood... the timbers, doors, trim, cabinets, siding and decking are all high-quality, recycled lumber.

- The foam-core wall and roof panels and triple-glazed, low-E windows make a very efficient skin around our frame.

- Our primary source of heat is a 7000# wood-burning masonry heater (with a bake-oven for bread and pizzas).

- A heat-recovery ventilation system ensures good indoor air quality with minimal energy loss.

- The foundation was built with super-efficient insulated concrete forms.

- All the finishes, sealers and pigments in our home are natural oils, or non-toxic, water-based finishes.


Neighborhood Description

Our home sits on 2.5 acres in Game Creek Canyon, 2 miles east of Victor ID, right at the foot of Teton Pass. We're not in a subdivision (no covenants or HOA dues.) Just north of our property is the Targhee National Forest and then Grand Teton National Park. Our neighbors are the moose, elk, deer, bears, mountain lions and wolves of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Some of the best back-country skiing and biking in the country is just up the road on Teton Pass on the way to Jackson, Wyoming, 18 miles to the east. There are about a dozen other homes in Game Creek Canyon and all of the nearby lots have been developed.
