Feature Friday - Featured Listing

Today's Feature Friday is a featured home listing!  Bobbie Carll is featuring this beautiful Durango home. Tucked into a mountain at almost 8000 feet elevation this one-of-a-kind solar retreat house features round living spaces with vast expanses of glass, and skylights designed for winter sun pouring through to heat south facing adobe walls and bancos. Cooling evening temperatures then naturally draw heat out from the dense walls into the living area creating a warmth one feels to the bone. Rough cut slabs of wood frame each window to create a pleasing contrast with smooth plaster walls and deep panoramic views.
