Realtor Mitch Weiner tells me that John Andrews – the earthship consultant who studied with Mike Reynolds – was involved in building this home.

The 4.95 acre property borders National Forest land and also includes an artesian well, a 22′ grow dome, multiple storage tanks, five outbuildings, AND guest quarters!

The grow dome provides a place to grow your goodies year round – never mind those Colorado winters.

The land is adjacent to the James Creek – which I’m told is good trout fishin’.
