Anyone who calls the Southwest home for any period of time will tell you that managing the heat in desert living is the most important aspect in creating a comfortable space. Heat rises as we all know and therefore structures tend to be low. Single storey homes are the most common profile, but even they require ingenuity to prevent heat from entering the interiors.
Roger and Cyndie invited us to their home to talk with us about their new Santa Fe Patio Wind and Solar Screens™. They have traveled, lived in Alberta and Minnesota, and are now settled in Santa Fe. It is a quiet and elegant home, with comfortable furniture, interesting and beautiful art, a selection of lovely, colorful kilims in every room, and magnificent views of the Jemez Mountains to the west from their portal.
