What makes your home a Green or Healthy Home?
It’s was made with earth and stone and was minimally painted 12 years ago with a low VOC paint. Uses rainwater. It’s self-sufficient and off the grid. It’s far from the city and it’s pollution. It’s easy on the environment leaving an almost invisible carbon footprint. It was made out of mostly recycled materials, bottles, cans, tires, etc.
It is a breathtakingly beautiful neighborhood on wide open plains dotted with Pinon Pine, wild sunflowers and surrounded by rainbow colored cliffs that define the area. The front windows face the Cerro Pedernal, Georgia O’Keefe made this mountain famous with the number of times she painted it. My nearest neighbor is .05 to 1 mile away. The property has a private access road to the lake which is a mile away. Ghost Ranch is located across the lake nestled below those famous rainbow colored cliffs. The Rio Chama flows in and out of the lake it is used by campers, fisherman, rafters and kayakers alike. My house is located off of a well maintained mile long dirt road. I have uninterrupted 360 degree views and each one is beautiful. Many famous artists and writers live in this awe inspiring area. The weather here is mild to moderate in all four seasons
