This weathered log cabin on a mountain top near Idaho Springs, Colorado is in need of a major renovation and an addition to accommodate an expanding multi-generational family.

The home site offers sensational views of several 14ers and the historic Evans Ranch. Due to this exposure, the site experiences extreme wind and heavy snowfall.

Our plan is to save the foundation, main floor and log walls of the cabin to keep its historic context. Adding a new second floor and roof will stabilize the existing structure. This 2-story addition will capture the views and sunlight with an expansive glass wall, while curved steel beams will cap the windows and the porch.

With the addition of bedrooms, bathrooms, a modern kitchen and updated building systems, large family gatherings for generations to come will be possible.

Construction is to begin in the spring of 2022.
