A Passively Heated and Passively Cooled House This passively heated and cooled house is ideal for locations where conventional electric power is cost prohibitive. It minimizes the size of the HVAC system. Geothermal, the most efficient HVAC, minimizes the number of solar panels and wind turbines required for electric power generation. This house doesn’t just slash energy requirements. Its rustic stone and cedar interior glows in natural light flowing through south-facing glass to create a unique ambiance.

A 30% energy tax credit for geothermal HVAC, solar panels and wind generated electricity systems is available until 2016. (For further information regarding energy tax credits, visit www.energysavers.gov/ financial/70010.html.) From a cost perspective, minimization of equipment size with passive heating & cooling makes this technology even more attractive. Monthly energy consumption and cost for this house are shown at passivesolarabodes.com. The yearly energy consumed by the model is 15% of the amount predicted by the Passive Design calculation. It is only 4% of the amount predicted by the Conventional Design calculation. (Results differ by location.)

This design is perfect for anyone who might want to get as far away as possible. Energy for heating and cooling has been minimized by design and demonstrated with construction and data collection. Geothermal HVAC with photovoltaic and wind generated electricity increases the range of location decisions. A combination of modern and old-fashioned technology will maximize lifestyle maintenance for your children and grandchildren in the future.

L

ive the rural lifestyle at its finest: unmatched privacy and solitude, an absence of noise and light pollution and amazing big-sky starry nights.

Travel 10 miles in any direction and you will only find two occupied residences—20 miles encompasses only a handful more. At Bliss Ranch, your only neighbors are the native wildlife and the only sounds are those of the songbirds—a true place to saddle up and ride a diverse and private Montana estate. “Bliss Ranch is perfect for someone who values history, privacy and natural beauty,” said

From the song: “The Gift” When the Lord called Charlie to His home up yonder He said, “Kid Russell, I got a job for you. You’re in charge of sunsets in Old Montana ‘Cause I can’t paint them quite as good as you.” - Performed and written by Ian Tyson

Dave Bliss, owner of Bliss Ranch (also known as Powder River Breaks Ranch) for 45 years. “Since I was young, I knew I wanted to be a cowboy. I arrived in 1966 with a two-wheel drive pickup and a one-horse trailer, and with the guidance of exceptional and experienced neighbors and determination, I created a strong ranching operation that let a young New York City boy fulfill his dreams of becoming a cowboy.” Aptly named, these 16,788± total acres (9,162± deeded, 4,644± BLM lease and 2,982 state lease) stretch 1,000 vertical feet from the lower end on the Powder River to the upper end on the “High Divide”, encompassing a diverse landscape Volume 43 Farm&Ranch West

perfect for working livestock, enjoying outdoor recreation and wildlife viewing. Literally framed by natural landmarks, Bliss Ranch is bisected by the Divide, which offers incredible views of the Big Horn Mountain Ranch to the southwest, the Powder River breaks to the east and the hills of the Custer National Forest to the north. Pristine rainwater and snowmelt drain west to Tongue River and east to Powder River, providing abundant water that enriches an untouched landscape. With no public roads across or against the ranch and minimal improvements, most of the ranch is just as it was when the Plains Indians called the area home. “It’s the pristine character that’s so exceptional,” said Bliss. “Being here is a daily celebration of God’s creation, mostly untrammeled by man. I can tell you that seeing a Charlie Russell [a famous artist known for his depictions of the Old American West] sunset from the divide makes you feel like you are in the 19th century.” It is a history still written in the land, illustrated by the still-visible relics of old homesteads over a century past. Juxtaposing the historical structures, the ranch’s modern improvements are an evolution of that history and a testament to the true Old West spirit. At the headquarters, set in a beautiful and protected draw, the barn (c.1918), granary (c.1916) and the three-bedroom main house (c. 1916) were built soon after C.F. McKenzie homesteaded here in 1916 and retain their historical character with the use of native materials. Approximately 20 miles of underground stock water pipeline provide well-distributed water to all pastures.

Atwood Ranch California v Glenn County v Orland

N

Nestled in the foothills of the Coastal Mountains, Atwood Ranch provides a perfect setting where broodmares and foals enjoy life on 2,500 acres of native grasslands in the oak-studded, rolling hills of Northern California. Captivating views of snowcapped Mount Shasta, Mount Lassen, the Sierras and the Sacramento Valley create the backdrop for this premier breeding and training facility. The ranch is fully committed to its principles of breeding, raising and nurturing the finest Quarter Horses, bred for competition in cutting, cattle working events and reining, as

well as recreational performance. The ranch specializes in extensive young horse development and educational programs, including the Parelli Pre-School Training program, but is equally suited for a first-class performance horse training operation or large-scale breeding establishment. Central to the success of the ranch programs are its impressive quality facilities; the large, freestanding 140' by 250' barn includes many amenities for the trainer and breeder with large office space, breeding shed with stocks and vet lab, tack and wash bays and foaling and stallion stalls. In addition, a 120' by 100' clear span riding arena, a 200' round training arena, 24-stall training barn, hay barn and three hot walkers accommodate most every facet of horse development necessary to this highly effective and successful breeding and training facility. Ranch fields are divided into many pastures, some with hundreds of acres, some smaller. Others are set up for special use like weaning, geriatrics or rehabilitation. Top-quality fences are built with woven wire, using steel pipe for brace posts and gates. Water is pumped from a 2,500 gpm well and circulated to the barns and most fields by miles of buried pipeline. The largest fields have big reservoirs with year-round water. Some pasture is leased to cattle operations. For additional details and photos, visit VanCleveRanches.com. Equine enthusiasts will also want to take a look at the ranch website: AtwoodRanchNaturally.com. $3,900,000.

The ranch has quality, sandy loam soils and two low-lift wells providing water to two pivots and wheel lines. Near the Butte Valley farming community of Dorris, it is a 20-minute drive to Klamath Falls, Oregon, which provides all your service needs. $1,690,000.
