Taos Ski Valley, New Mexico
This 4000 square foot second home is used year-round for summer hiking and winter skiing.
A wide ground level entrance hallway provides ample room for skis and other gear. The stair to the second floor main entrance clears snow from boots as guests reach the door. The extra-deep garage contains an ample workshop area. The third floor loft (with pool table) overlooks the great room.
Completed in 2006, this home's compact footprint and simple roof with sheltered outside spaces make the most efficient use of a very small site.
