Solargon Ski Huts:
A Place To Relax After
A Day In the Snow
Perhaps you’re a ski bum who has a favorite mountain, and you’d love to park yourself in your very own ski hut at the bottom of it. Or perhaps you’re a land manager, tasked with providing warming huts for cross country skiers and snowshoers. Maybe you don’t even ski, but you love the clear cold mountain air and you’d like a special little place in that special mountain range.
But what about cost? What about construction hassles? What about paying a lot for very little interior space? How can you have your special place in the snow, without being snowed under by details and complications?
Solargon is your answer.
We offer buildings that go up fast, provide super efficient insulation and structural stability, and plenty of interior space with a minimal footprint. As if that wasn’t enough, our buildings are made of sustainable materials, meet or exceed various environmental, fire rating and stability ratings, and go up in a matter of hours, not weeks, with very little waste and very little disruption to the surrounding area. Your dream ski chalet can be more than a dream. Let us help you make it a reality.
Solargon – The high country answer to hearth and home.
Your Solargon Will Provide:
Fast-fast, dried-in, enclosed structure. Less material loss through theft, and enjoy your dwelling much sooner.
Prebuilt wall and roof panels. The Solargon’s structural insulated panels (SIPs) ensure a fast, efficient building setup. The 20’ model can be erected in mere hours; the 30’ model can be erected in less than two days.
Professional engineer stamped plans to speed the building permit process.
Easy construction even in remote areas. The structural insulated panels (SIPs) can be loaded into standard family-sized trucks, and can be carried by two people. The patented connectors require only simple hand tools. No large equipment, no cranes, no power tools required.
Cost effective construction and operation. You’ll pay less labor to erect the structure and you’ll spend less over the lifetime of the structure, than you would for conventional buildings. This accomplishes financial responsibility.
Small environmental footprint. The structural insulated panels (SIPs) are composed of renewable materials, the building envelope ensures a good tight structure, the insulation ensures low utility bills, the layout ensures efficient air movement and the building design maximizes both passive and optional active solar gain.
Excellent indoor air quality. The panels’ natural materials, combined with the open layout, help prevent mold and mildew and minimize off gassing. The tight construction blocks drafts. No formaldehyde, asbestos, fiberglass, cellulose or VOC’s are used in any of the construction materials.
Custom layouts. Each floorplan is open, bright and well ventilated, aided by the custom aircraft-grade acrylic operable skylight. Your dream floorplan is possible because the walls and roof form a structurally monolithic, load bearing shell. Interior walls are not required, thus room arrangement is completely flexible. The 30’ model has sufficient interior height for a loft, thus increasing the available square footage.
Quality materials and methods of construction. All materials meet or exceed standard residential requirements. The Solargon design has an ASTM class 1 fire resistant rating and a FEMA class 4 flood resistant material rating. The Solargon design was winner of the EPA’s 2004 stratospheric ozone and climate protection awards, and meets or exceeds LEED standards.
Easy siting for the best views. The Solargon’s compact footprint provides the maximum amount of interior square footage with a minimum footprint. The octagonal shape allows for additional windows to be placed in any wall to take in attractive views in any direction.
Solar and green building efficiencies. Passive solar design and open span interior space ensures good solar gain and efficient heating and cooling. The structural insulated panels (SIPs) are built with renewable, natural materials and patented connectors wherever possible, ensuring fast erection time, airtight construction, and minimal heating and cooling requirements.
Simplified electrical installation. Each Solargon arrives at your site with electrical chases embedded in the walls and ready for final wiring installations. Those installations are much faster than in conventional buildings.
Aircraft-grade acrylic operable skylight. Our large, centered skylight lends lighting and airflow options to your layout which conventional skylights can’t match.
Competively priced. The cost of our high quality construction materials is more than offset by the rapid erection time and minimized utilities.
