Other Key Features of Our Home: The house construction is wood and steel framed with a stucco exterior and shake shingle roof. The rock inside and outside of the house is moonlight quartzite from a quarry near Challis, Idaho. The home has been designed utilizing half levels throughout the house as opposed to full stories which optimizes the flow and utilization of space. The main living area is comprised of the living room, kitchen, and dining area (including the wet bar) with spectacular views of Bald Mt. through the very large unpaned windows. Various doors in each space open out onto the upper deck, and door in the kitchen leads out to the covered kitchen patio with great views of Bald Mt. where there is a fireplace, two overhead infrared gas heaters, and natural gas and charcoal Weber grills. The mud room is expansive with six different entrances/exits, and the washer/dryer is located in this area. Just outside the kitchen is the mud room landing and pantry with many provisions for the house, a second refrigerator, and ice maker.

SuitabilityOur home is heated with floor-based radiant heat throughout the main house. The Guest Quarters above the garage is heated with forced air heat. Like most homes in the Wood River Valley, our home does not require or have air conditioning available since it is naturally cooled during the summer by cross ventilation created by the many windows throughout our home.
Electronic media systems are located in several rooms of the house--living room, guest quarters common area, study, master bedroom, family room.
Infrared natural gas heaters are positioned above the entryway into the house as well as over the kitchen patio. They are controlled by timer switches.
The driveway/courtyard, decks, and hot tub deck are capable of being heated with a snowmelt system, but we have restricted the usage of this system over the past year due to the cost of natural gas and to conserve energy. As an alternative, we use a snowplowing and shoveling service which is included in the rental expense.
