We stayed for three days in the house this summer and it is a wonderful resting and contemplation place. As it is built for the local climate, with sensible orientation, using appropriate shading and thermal mass, we particularly appreciated that air conditioning was not required, whilst the house kept cool. Our stay was made a bit more eventful by massive summer monsoon thunderstorms which kicked the arroyos in action. However lovely neighbours helped solve this unexpected issue. A true taste of northern New Mexico.
