Hailing from the Pacific Northwest, this couple had “Green” in mind from the start.
The home’s structure is a hybrid, but is largely a working timber frame, cut from the pilings which once held up the bridge in the Great Salt Lake. The exterior trim, and some of that on the interior, is all reclaimed wood from old barns across the West.
The Cherry cabinetry was custom made locally in Steamboat Springs to the owners’ specifications. A durable slate covers the entire main floor. Recycled glass tile was used in the master shower. Stair treads and built-ins were crafted using reclaimed Douglas Fir. The outside comes in via many doors to the concrete patios, and even by peering out through the upper windows to the green roof.
The owner acted as her own interior designer, and kept the clean, contemporary lines throughout, as well as making all of the finish material selections. This durable home sits easily in it’s native surroundings.
