This house has been built on a city lot in Craig, Colorado. The clients wanted a modest sized bungalow style house as John and Sally's children are grown. We placed the master bedroom on the main floor and two guest bedrooms on the second floor, tucked under the roof. There is a large, open basement with the potential for an additional two bedrooms on that level.
They wanted a welcoming front porch, large enough for sitting, in keeping with the bungalow style and a small patio, for morning coffee, facing the street and the views to the southeast. The main outdoor living space is accessed from the kitchen and dining space and is on the northeast side of the house so that it would be protected from the intense summer sun. The interior is open, but with tapered columns and exposed wood beams to define the various spaces.
The large windows in the shed dormer, above the front porch, insure that light will reach the stairs and all of the interior spaces. Though modest in size, the house is rich in charm and detail.
