Our solar home is FINALLY taking shape!

front view Deer Creek houseFor those who are new here, my husband Mike and I sold our perfectly good suburban home in Fort Collins Colorado four months ago, to move 225 miles south and build the home we have always dreamed of.

When I first met Mike at age 49 in early 2005, we fell in love quite quickly.  He told me then that he wasn’t moving again unless he got a great view, and could design and build a passive solar home outside the city.  Nine years later that dream is coming true!

View from our landThis is the view from our foothills land two hours south of Denver, a fantastic view of Spanish Peaks! A few weeks ago we got the trenching done, and watched them put in the footers… We are ecstatic!

This process has been painfully slow!  Note our impatience and optimism back in July!
