Hi, I'm Mark!
I've been fortunate to call Pagosa Springs my home for over 35 years. I travel extensively, both domestically and internationally, proliferating my environmental and humanitarian construction materials and methods.

We can enjoy the majority of the highest peaks and the largest wilderness areas in the U.S. And all at our doorstep.

There is no need to drive anywhere as the best restaurants, shopping and even our hot springs are only a short stroll on the river walk from our sunny passive solar vacation homes finished in 2008. Since our homes are passive solar they are not o
