This 1164 sq. ft. Cottage is one of our Lifetime Series:
A Lifetime Home...
Why It's Extraordinary...
Why It's Green:
1) Utility Independence
This two-fold initiative will enable development in remote locations and provide additions to current homes for supplemental, or even primary utility services. This practical and affordable Utility Independence Series provides new opportunities for vacation retreats, private quarters hidden in remote natural areas, and Freedom to live virtually wherever you choose without sacrificing comfort or convenience.
2) Learning from the Past, Planning for the Future...
With each new day, we seem to be confronted with issues of depleting resources or other environmental concerns. This series of designs offers a proactive opportunity to reverse the trend, to use emerging technologies, to become increasingly self-sufficient and become a part, not of the problem, but of the solution.
3) Cimarron Place:
If you think equestrian, then you can imagine the possibilities of Cimarron Place. This is a getaway for those who love horses, the outdoors, entertaining, and an escape from all the rest. Your cares and concerns will melt away as you spend time doing what you enjoy most. Whether a compliment to your current home, or some time on the range you've always envisioned, the Cimarron Place provides the opportunity to experience that freedom. Its Barn styling is the perfect form for its function...a well deserved "time away from it all". Beyond the free-spirited lifestyle, you'll also appreciate the many cost-saving features of this design; Dow Powerhouse Solar Shingles, a Gale vertical axis wind turbine, a Rain Water Cistern Storage System, 6" SIP exterior wall construction, just to mention a few.
The unique floor plan provides both a private Owner's Suite and a bunk area space for "Fun & Games" as well as relaxation. The Suite features a walk-in closet and direct access to the bath. The entertainment center is easily viewable from the sofa or the banquette. The kitchen is an efficiency design and includes a spacious pantry.
The Lower level hosts an array of solar & mechanical equipment, including a tankless water heater and an optional laundry. There are three Stalls, the third of which may be used as a Tack Room. When the ridings done and the sun has set, the expansive covered porch provides a breezy gathering area to share all those "tall tales"...which will likely continue when the gang moves upstairs for some memorable "Fun & Games."
