SPECIAL INFORMATION

This home was built with local materials in the southwestern style to complement the dry site conditions. The modified adobe structure was labor intensive but cost-competitive for the homeowner since it did not require a mortgage. The passive solar design provides primary heating and cooling in the home, while a wind generator supplies electricity.
