Trey Parker and Matt Stone, creators of American animated sitcom called ‘South Park’ have recently got an environmentally friendly mansion constructed for themselves in western Colorado. Dubbed as the Steamboat Springs, the $5 million eco-friendly ski home blends western design with Japanese accents. Constructed in 2007, the home designed by architect Michael Rath flaunts beautiful ceilings made of Douglas fir timbers salvaged from a rail trestle that once spanned Great Salt Lake.
Apart from leaving you mesmerized with breath-taking views of a mountain valley and an aspen grove, the Steamboat Springs resting on two acres boasts its green credentials. In addition to the timber-frame, the mansion also has uses recycled carpet and in-floor, radiant heating. Just at the rear of the property, at the end of a winding stone walkway, is a Japanese teahouse with sliding screens as walls, and tatami mats on the floor. The land and the construction of the residence and teahouse cost the duo a whooping $5 million.
