Affordable sustainability a focus for Bluff Park family

Zee Burns has to be the luckiest pup on Shades Mountain. Not only does she have a great family, Liane and Roy Burns and their son Walt, but she also calls Bluff Park’s only green/sustainable living home.. home. What four-legged friend would not wish for a living space with floor length windows where the sun pours in? ”She seems to know when and where the sun will shine to provide the bright, warm spot she craves,” Liane Burns said.

The journey to building this great home and pet paradise on Shades Crest Road started with a vision for modern and affordable sustainable living and a long search.

“We searched constantly for nearly a year to find an available empty lot.” Liane says. The Burns wanted to build somewhere that was close to the city and easily accessible. They also wanted a cozy neighborhood feel and one that they felt could support and potentially embrace the modern home style they envisioned. The area needed to be diverse enough to accommodate the home. Bluff Park was perfect!
