Colorado Mountaintop Home
COLORADO MOUNTAINTOP HOME
Designed as a full-time residence for a retired professional couple, the Mountaintop Home was created to take advantage of the spectacular, 50 mile vistas of the surrounding mountain ranges. Situated at 8,500 ft. elevation on a rather small and initially inaccessible site, the home is tucked into the mountainside yet cantilevers the deck above the natural landscape below.
The Mountaintop Home is constructed using a Douglas Fir Timberframe manufactured in Minnesota with Pine decking for the ceiling. The roof is constructed of Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS) with the walls being 6″, fully insulated stud framing. The main floor features a hot-water radiant heated concrete slab.
The home is 2,500 s.f. on two levels with a 940 s.f. attached garage. The Home was designed to withstand 130 mph winds and the intense sun at the high altitude. Breakfast or evenings on the deck watching the sunrise and later the spectacular sunsets is unmatched in it’s beauty.
