Brad & Brenda Harwood

Year Built:


Type of Project:

New Single Family Home Construction, 2800 sq. ft., with mostly reclaimed lumber.


Downtown Crested Butte, on the northwest side up on the hill.

Unique Challenges:

Multiple mature trees on a corner lot that were preserved.  The property is also located on the hillside, which required consideration of drainage issues and resulted in a beautifully crafted retaining wall.  Location in the "historic core" of the downtown historic district of Crested Butte required adherence to additional regulations and review boards.

Standout Features:

Truss detail and craftsmanship, tile work, hand-laid rock retaining wall, Site built-ins, Graphic Eye lighting system. Hillside landscaping with mature trees and retaining walls punctuate the design of the home.
