Historic Homes in Las Cruces Are Home-Owners' Dream

I read with delight the story in our local newspaper, the Las Cruces Bulletin, about a couple in Las Cruces who purchased an old home in the Las Cruces Alameda Depot Historic District to make their dream home.  The home was in total disrepair, almost a tear-down, and would have discouraged most people from even walking through the door, much less considering living in it!

But the old adobe structure had good bones, and this couple had a vision.  They gathered a team of building professionals and they set out to make this home beautiful, preserving its hisorical character, but they now have a LEED certified energy efficient home with a HERS Rating of 55.  LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards help assure that a home is comfortable, healthy, and sustainable.  When completed, this couple will have a home that is far more energy efficient that most brand new homes in Las Cruces, and they will live in a charming, historic neighborhood within walking distance to downtown Las Cruces.
