You Can Rent This Off-the-Grid Passive House in the Colorado Mountains
If you ever want to experience a little off-the-grid living, you can rent this environment-friendly house in the Colorado mountains to get away from it all.
Architectural designer Andrew Michler constructed Colorado's first Passive House in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains west of Fort Collins and Loveland. A passive house requires very little energy to maintain comfortable living year round and is built with materials that are sustainable, fully recyclable, or biodegradable.
The water they use is collected from rainwater and a drilled well.
The house is small but sleeps four with a walk-in shower, a chill room with a hammock, a small kitchen, and a double bedroom.
While the house does have a Bluetooth stereo and an iPod dock, there is no cell phone reception and no TV, so you can truly get away from it all.
They have a bicycle and a kayak you can borrow, there is plenty of hiking, and at your request, they will do breakfast and barbecues.
It's not going to be cheap, but for $250 a night you can experience off-the-grid living in this unique passive house and some beautiful surroundings in the Colorado mountains.
