Winter park, Grand county, Colorado. Building a new home in the mountains is not easy but so much fun! We collaborated with Julie Doman Interior Design on this simple cabin. You remember this last post of the amazing site that we get to work with. Since that post we have made much progress on the design. Making this project much closer to getting built.
These simple views from Revit are getting me excited about this project. It’s going to be such an incredible place to rent as a mountain house. We are designing it for the ski season in mind. Keeping in mind hardy materials that can withstand the impact of ski boots and snow being dragged into house. Concrete floors and radiant heat were a no-brainer. But we also created extensive ski storage and boot warming space.
The front of the house will be a minimalist box form and house the garage and the entry portal. Many houses in Winter park and Grand county, Colorado are modern. But I haven’t seen any that are this minimalist. The house is like a secret where the front looks unassuming, but the inside and back are spectacular. The process of moving through the house will be very exciting.
We are going to pause on the project while we get some preliminary budget numbers from the homeowners. The next steps will be to submit to the county for a building permit. From a design perspective, our next steps are to do color renderings of the interior and exterior and the landscape. The color of the house will be all black, and the landscape will make it really sharp. Our landscape architect is R Design Studios and they have pulled together an amazing and minimalist design. This will perfectly compliment the intent of the house.
