Sustainable Ranch Home | Lake Creek, Colorado

Tucked in an aspen grove on 336 acres of land in Lake Creek, this expansive home features a curved “garden roof” over the main living space. Dark wood, exposed wood beams, and a wall of doors that open to the outside patio, the home takes advantage of natural environment, as sustainability was a major focus in creating this space. The design and construction of this 7,234 square foot home was focused on creating a self-sustaining, energy efficient, healthy living environment. The infrastructure is supported by well water, a septic system, propane, a horizontal geothermal system and a Solar Thermal system for domestic hot water.
