Sustainable Building and Living
 
The owners of this property are committed to building and living in a sustainable manner. We are continually learning about how to reduce the resources use, re-use as much building material as possible, and minimize the amount of waste generated.

The studio was recently completely renovated. Salvaged wood was used for all of the wood trim and miscellaneous framing. Other sustainable building materials used were: insulation free of formaldehyde, natural non-toxic wood stain and natural saltillo tiles. With exception of the sofa, mattress and dining table, no new furniture was made for this model.

Our commitment to sustainable building continues with our natural and sustainable living style. No pesticides or herbicides are used in our property, and only natural fertizliers and compost are used to supplement our plants. The house is cleaned with non-toxic, natural cleaning materials.
