VISION House at Mariposa Meadows

Green Builder Media introduces its first entirely self-sufficient, off-grid project in the VISION House Series. The VISION House at Mariposa Meadows and the ReVISION House at Rancho La Garita will be perched high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. They will unite extraordinary design, extreme performance, innovative products and intelligent technology.

The goal is to demonstrate how homes built in an extreme, high-altitude setting can be optimized for performance, self-sufficiency, durability and resource management. The homes will display solutions that can be applied in climate zones across the nation. The project will focus on key sustainability elements such as energy efficiency, renewables, water and resource conservation, healthy indoor air quality, durability and enabling technologies.
