cottage 3: Amrita

Tucked away in the historic Bear Gulch, Orchard, Amrita has plenty of privacy but is conveniently located in the central part of the valley.  Environmentally conscious, Cottage 3 features a rammed earth dome for practice as well as a strawbale cottage for living.  

Earthen floors and earthen or strawbale walls keep the living and practice spaces temperate during the heat of the summer and the cold of the winter.
