    Default A rectangular home near Salt Lake City

    In the land of large mountain lodge wannabes, two California natives tuck Utah’s first LEED for Homes–rated house onto the side of Emigration Canyon.

    I actually like it simply because yes, it is a box, but it is not white and concrete. The interior could be easily redone. Maybe a few plantings outside. Incredible views.

    However, it is in Utah... There is always a down side.

    The fireplace (and mom' shoes). WTF? The views will be better when there's some snow. OK for a weekend ski lodge but I wouldn't want to live there. I bet it's hotter than hades in the summer months.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Remember, this is Utah we are talking about. As in makes Tasmania and New Zealand seem cutting edge.

    i love it. i'd dump the horrible sofa and change the dining room chairs and burn the crucifix but overall i think it's a great house. and i think the fireplace is awesome.

    I think that is a death-penalty offense there-and they still have the firing squad mind ya!

    Would be better to just have a ginormous helicopter pick it up and whisk it away to a location of your choice-maybe a place where they actually do support choice?

    Hell I hear it is hard to find a damn liquor store open in Utah because of all the Mormon laws corrupting the place.

    And can you imagine your neighbors? Probably would be over constantly trying to save your soul from eternal damnation-and you know how those Mormons are not afraid one bit to come a'knockin on the front door..

    I like it, I'd live in the house. But I think I'd move it out of Utah first. . .

    It's an over-priced, but more bland, double-wide.
