Fall is beginning in Tres Orejas, New Mexico

Casa Juan Galan

Casa Juan Galan

The apples have been picked, the Casa is still for sale–although there has been some interest lately.

I’ll try to answer some questions that always arise even though they are mostly addressed elsewhere in this blog or on the web page http://CasaJuanGalan.com.

Yes there is water for all year round use from the rain and snow collection. I did have to have water delivered one drought year–cost me about $150. Now there is a community subscription well down the road towards Taos. Some folks use this for their drinking water. The Casa has a reverse osmosis filter for drinking water.
The property is 3/4 acre–(3) 1/4 a. lots together in an “L” shape.

My opinion is that the house is a great size for one person or a couple. It might be too small for children also. But, another room or more could be added if one wanted to spend more money. The pavilion attached to the tank house could be closed in to make a nice studio or office. It’s about 8′ x 12′ . The ‘bedroom’ is about 8′ x 16′ with a queen size loft at one end.

In regards to owner financing, I haven’t quite figured that out yet. I would probably give a better price with more money out front. I would have to work that out with the buyer. I don’t think I can give a fixed answer yet.

There are no community or governmental regulations that would keep one from having animals.

I will try to answer any other questions you may have. Please, if you’re not serious, don’t start a dialogue.

Peace,   John

PS, Kona (see previous post), a little short of her 19th birthday, has decided that she can no longer walk. Therefor, we may not be able to have anyone ‘dogsit’ her this winter.

A few details about Casa Juan Galan – Solar – Wind Energy Home near Taos, New Mexico

In response to questions I’ve been asked, here are some details about Casa Juan Galan – Alternative Energy Home.

A few details about Casa Juan Galan:
The altitude is 7200 feet.
Some firewood comes with the property. It’s easy to have firewood delivered. The wood stove could be replaced with propane, if so desired.
The roof rain & snow water collection system provides enough water except in drought years. The storage tanks hold about 4500 gallons. There are people who will bring a truck load of water (not sure of the present price). On the way into town there is a community membership well where pure water can be purchases inexpensively. Drilling a well would have to be very deep, therefor expensive.
Shopping, medical, movies, restaurants, etc. are in Taos–about a 25-30 min. drive.
The property is rural. Animals are allowed. No covenants or that type of thing.
The neighbors are not real close, but close enough to walk to. Most are very nice people–all ages, from 70′s to 20-30′s.
The ‘tract’ was subdivided into 1/4 acre ‘city’ lots. Owners live all over the country. The house is on one of 3, 1/4 acre contiguous lots (3/4 acres total). One person in California owns 1-1/4 acres (5 lots) contiguous to my 3/4. He has no plans to build and might be convinced to sell (or trade).
The state of the Casa currently is:
Some final connections need to be made to gas and plumbing. And a little finish work to cabinetry, etc.
My estimate of work to be done (if the buyer isn’t a handyman/woman) is about $4,000.

I will continue to do work as money is available until the property is sold, raising the price accordingly.
