This incredible zero energy, sustainable property was built with love and consciousness. 20 acres of mature ponderosa pines and rock outcroppings create the setting for this peaceful retreat. The strawbale cabin is sited in a SE orientation for maximum sun exposure in the winter months and cooling breezes in the summer months. The building site faces into a beautiful mountain valley with a sacred kiva and powerful prayer rock outcroppings adjacent. Construction was a thoughtful, intentional process. The energy is so clean, the hand carved details so beautiful.
