Why Here?

When we first moved to Santa Fe, we moved into a small apartment on Hickox St. We loved the location because it was so close town, but just far enough away for the neighborhood to still be quiet. We really loved being able to experience the town and outdoors without having to drive. Coffee shops, a yoga studio, Alto Park, restaurants and the Santa Fe River Trail path to downtown are all right there. We believe that how you get around in a place defines your experience of the place. It is a much different experience to walk or ride to your destination. Life moves slower. It seems more fulfilling and richer, and the place where you live looks more welcoming and beautiful.

When we moved out of that apartment on Hickox St. we moved just another mile west. On our way into town we would always pass by this one empty lot. Every time we did we would think: How great would it be to build two energy efficient houses on that lot? After two years of thinking this, we could not resist. We had to go for it! And, the small casitas would be energy efficient, affordable, comfortable, and best of all, in just the right location!
