“Kivi Mäki” Passive House

This mountain contemporary home in Durango designed by Courtney King Studios was built to be 92% more efficient than a typical home.  The 7.2 Kilowatts of high efficiency solar panels that cover the entire third story south facing roof will produce enough power to run the home and charge an electric vehicle.

"Snowslide" Passive House

Some aspects of a house, whether it be the design, the finishes put into it, or the location, define them. Take all of those aspects and build houses that prioritize occupant comfort and practice proven building science principles and you have a true Durango Green Home!

“Ella Vita” Modern Contemporary

Built in the city limits less than a minute to the Animas and downtown Durango yet still affords plenty of privacy.  The home backs up to Overend Mountan Park on 3 sides and takes advantage of the private setting with ample windows to bring in natural light and the expansive views.

"Akamai Hale" Off Grid

This “smart home” was built off the grid just below the Hermosa Cliffs at 8600 Ft. elevation North of Durango.   Although a very private picturesque site, it was quite challenging to build upon since a solid layer of Hermosa Limestone was only inches below the ground.  An efficient small cabin was the plan from the start, building an off-grid home altogether came about because of the high costs associated with bringing power to the remote build site.

"Clearview Cabin" Mountain Chic

With views for miles and good bones this rustic mountain log post and beam home needed a re-invention.  We updated and added over 1000 square feet of redwood and douglas fir decking to take advantage of the views all the way south to New Mexico on a clear day.
