Zen Ranch: A Colorado Straw Bale Home

This sustainably-built sport ranch brings an Olympian snowboarder peace.

After living in a tipi on his 42 acres for a year, Thedo Remmelink wanted an east-facing entrance and rounded corners on the home he built. Builder John Randolph used local wood and stone and straw bales from the nearby San Luis Valley to implement architect Todd Young's design.
