WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE HOME

Cathedral ceiling, minimum heat costs during winter, wood stove primary heat, Geodesic Dome concept. Lot size is 1/2 acre, with an adjacent 1/2 acre of US Forest Service Land to the North. To cool the home, open the skylight in the master bedroom and open the north side sliding glass door, plenty of outside air will enter. Lots of glass and lots of sun. South deck could be enclosed to form a sun room for solar heating. Composition roof just replaced in August, 2018. Home can be winterized in 20 min by turning off the water, isolating the hot water heater, and draining all the pipes using four valves, then antifreeze traps and toilets and walk away from the home. Electric bills during winter in winterized condition are about $50 a month.
