A Colorado couple comes back to Steamboat with a vision, and a schedule!
After watching this man fill three dumpsters with trash from the 1940’s home he just purchased, I approached him while he was enjoying a cold beer on his deck after a long day of demolition. He explained to me that while they already had plans drawn, they did not yet have a contractor. We reviewed the plans together, which entailed selectively demolishing and reconfiguring half the 3,000 square feet existing home, and adding another 3,000 square feet to that. It would be a big transformation, but not out of the question. The kicker… his wife was pregnant with their fist child, and they had to be in the house by December 12th, just under 8 months away. I told him we could do it, and we did.
The home is another PureBuilt example of a super efficient structure, finished out in mountain modern style. The owners had us leave “a few creaks” in the original wood floor of the older portion of the house to maintain its charm, and as a reminder of what once was there. Later, heavy steel beams were added to an existing attached structure so that its flat rooftop could be utilized as deck space for entertaining.
Today, the family enjoys the home with the addition of another little one, and a steady stream of family and friends visiting.
