CARBONDALE ” Debbie Keller recently announced the addition of a second location to her dog-grooming business. In addi­tion to the Dogg House in Basalt ( 927-1118) she has added another Dogg House in Carbondale, at 48 N. Fourth St. She hopes the second location will provide an addi­tional level of convenience for her clients and their dogs.

Keller is a member of the National Dog Groomers Association. She has been grooming dogs in the Roaring Fork Valley since 1989. She is famil­iar with and can groom all breeds.

Her business emphasizes healthy and happy dogs that enjoy being groomed. To this end, she introduces new and young dogs to the proce­dures very carefully.

BASALT ” The American Institute of Archi­tects recognized the small Basalt-­based architectural firm Flux, consist­ing of Scott Bartleet and Lyndal Williams, for the second time this year for excellence in architecture.

Flux received the 2006 state award from AIA Colorado for sus­tainability for the Fogel Residence at Stirling Ranch in Carbondale.

“This particular house didn’t real­ly employ a lot of fancy solar tech­nology but rather was about a com­mon- sense design approach that strives to create spaces that connect to the landscape and a building that minimizes its energy usage,” Bartleet said.

The owner and builder of the house, Anson Fogel, is also the founder of InPower Systems (inpow­ersystems. com), a local renewable and photovoltaic energy engineering firm.
