028 // What Does It Feel Like To Live In A House Designed For Wellness And Sustainability?

My favorite thing about buildings is the way they have the power to affect how I feel.

Have you noticed this?

A really massive concrete building might make you feel tiny, and maybe even a bit nervous.  A small, dark entryway feels pretty uncomfortable.  Smells and textures within a building can give you a feeling of curiosity.  Pathways and playful spotlights of natural lighting can make you feel excited, like you're on an adventure.  

027 // Choosing the Land, Orientation and Construction Type for Building Your Wellness Home

Welcome to September, where I'm happy to report that it is now acceptable to consume Fall flavored treats.  (I always miss CO the most this time of year since I no longer have access to my beloved Hey Pumpkin from DBC.)

This time of year is the perfect time to begin planning your new build or renovation project.  In many areas of the country (the cold, snowy areas) it's not ideal to start construction work during the winter.  

Which is why fall and winter are the best seasons to be designing your future home so your plans are ready to go for spring construction to begin.

024 // Sustainable Design vs Wellness Design – Is There A Difference?

What's your favorite thing to do outside?  

I have two favorites: Hiking and skiing (and a close third is a hilly bike ride).

I've spent most of my life in the mountains, enjoying the snow, the cool fall days, the rainy spring days (yes, I really do enjoy those!), and everything that surrounds me when I'm outside.

I think that's why I was drawn to studying sustainable design in architecture school.
