Crested Butte, CO

This home is an example of an alternative residence meeting the demanding regulations of a historic district.  There is much more to this home than meets the eye.  On the outside, it appears to be a conventionally built dwelling.  However, it is a timber framed, clay/straw home integrating numerous renewable energy technologies.  In addition to the main house, SmithWorks recycled the remains of a historic homestead cabin to build a garage with office space.  Photovoltaic panels, solar hot water, and a Tulikivi masonry stove are used to heat and power the residence.  Tulikivi stoves are super efficient; they produce large amounts of heat using minimal wood.  It has such a clean burn, it exceeds the toughest emissions standards.  This is a distinctive home within the town of Crested Butte, Colorado.
