Two of these Montana solar homes have sold, the third is now for sale. Dillon schools are excellent and it would be a great place to raise a family. These homes would also make a great second home for someone to escape the pressure of life on the coast, within easy distance of great fishing and hunting. The University provides ready renters, if income property is your motivation. Prices are on the Home Page.
Here we show an artist's rendering of how the homes will look when built and landscaping is in place, as well as a copy of the actual lot lines as recorded. Finally, we include copies of the actual floor plans of the three homes completed and ready to buy together with images of the finished homes.
A perspective view from the street of all three homes superimposed on an actual photograph of the site.
The first set of Blacktail homes is located on Railroad Street, which like most streets in Dillon, runs at a diagonal to a north/south line. The lot lines for the first three houses have been adjusted to make room for all three houses to have the wide part of the house facing due south. This layout allows the wide part of the houses to be exposed to the sun in winter and to the shade in summer.
Home 3A is built to order using conventional framing. The wall insulation is 2 inches of Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) in addition to conventional fiberglass batts. Window glass is the same quality as the other two homes. See more information about SPF and quality glass in the FAQ
More than one prospective buyer has said: "I would buy this home if it had a garage!". Accordingly, we have come to an agreement with the adjoining property owner to acquire a sufficient amount of that property to build a 20x24 ft detatched garage. This additional property is a strip 25' wide on the North-East border of Home 3A - Address is 619 N Railroad Street between Railroad Street and the alley behind. The addition to the 619 N Railroad Street lot would be 25x115 feet leaving a nice additional space for the homeowner to enjoy. A garden, or possibly some chickens, come to mind. Of course a larger garage would cost more, but for a buyer with a need for such and the ability to finance it, we would comply with those needs.
We have also contracted with the home builder to construct that garage, and we are ready to proceed as soon as we have a signed home purchase agreement in hand. Price: an additional $25,000, including the additional land.
