Year In Pictures: A 2019 Photo Essay Part II

See Year in Pictures Pt I.


Shifting toward one of the Metro's NW communities, I found myself in Rio Rancho atop a Vista Entrada home, staring at a 24-panel photovoltaic solar array on one side & stunning views of the Sandia Mountains on the other. To show both, we hired my favorite Drone Pilot, who captured dozens of images around the home & property, two seen above.

From the drone images, there appear to be PV solar arrays on numerous homes throughout the neighborhood, which is a big deal: due to the benefit of the solar panels, the above home has no monthly electric bill & is paid ~$600 per year from the electric company, for the energy it over-produces.

Closer to the Rio Grande, in a Corrales greenbelt property, hangs the image Four Horses, a mid-century Agnes Sims painting. Perfectly adorned among the adobe-brick walls, the owners of the four-acre horse property graciously left the artwork, below, for my client, who's a skilled horsewoman.

Below that is my favorite bathroom of the year, with it's cobalt penny-round shower tile, floating vanity & 'skatepark' porcelain sink, found at the La Luz townhome complex near Coors & Montao Blvd.
