Green Built, Sustainable Craftsman

This home is a sustainably built, Gold-Level Healthy Built Home.

From the moment you arrive at the front door, this home offers a retreat welcoming you to come inside, kick off your shoes, and relax. Whether you are admiring the beauty of the mountains from the covered porch or by the fire in the great room, you’ll appreciate that no detail was overlooked in integrating the design of the home with that of the landscape.

We so enjoy the house and offer a very heartfelt thank you for all you’ve done. We look forward to a continued friendship. We had a week here for the first time in a long time. We can only thank you so much. The home captures us anew each time we are here.
