This beautiful, compact (1600 sq. ft.) house is located in Milagro Cohousing in Tucson, AZ. Its features include:
"Adobe walls 16" thick, passive solar orientation, dual cooling systems, solar water heater (roof ready for PV), spacious covered front porch with ceiling fan, ocotillo fence, plenty of storage, balcony with stunning mountain views..."
Typical of cohousing communities, homes are clustered together to reduce sprawl. An added benefit is that the community captures rainwater in cisterns for irrigation, and has constructed its own wetlands to purify greywater naturally.
