This project belongs to one of the partners, Tim Stone. It began construction early 2014 with the Garage and ADU. Tim and his family moved from their home in North Routt County into the ADU, as they had twin boys on the way and wanted to be in town when they arrived. While living in the ADU, the home was constructed in 2015/16. A lot of self-performed trades, sweat equity, and industry discounts went into the creation of this project, where Tim and his family now live.
The views from the lot are up and out to the East and West to the top of Emerald and Mount Werner respectively, which drove an upside down space plan with upper level Eastern and Western decks. The interior space upstairs features expressed structural timber elements and a vaulted airy ceiling. The three bedrooms are organized off of a double loaded corridor on the ground level.
Some unique design features include the glass and steel main stair rail, structural steel channel knee bracing at the steep gable ends, and the two span, parallel chord timber and steel trusses supporting the great room roof. The Great room room and Stair volumes will one day resemble the burgundy oxide patina seen on the overhead doors, but for now, they keep their cold rolled steel finish until Tim gets the time to apply the patina recipe to bring this look out.
Many great local and regional sub contractors brought their talent to bear on this project including Beck Construction, New Mountain Builders, High Point Roofing, Colorado Timber Frames, Axis Steel, and Vaussa Millwork to name a few.
