One of my ongoing projects is the construction of a new house up Sunshine Canyon just west of Boulder, Colorado. My clients, long-time residents, lost their house in the Fourmile Fire last Fall and we are trying to replace the spirit and energy of that house while making a new design that is better suited to aging in place concepts.
With most of the home's spaces located on the main level, the spaces flow into each other and connect the interior and exterior in a seamless panorama.
I will be posting construction photos as we progress over the next year and add some thoughts about the design process and the techniques involved in building in such a fire-prone area.
