Project Description

Fourmile Fire Rebuild

After a tragic loss of their home in the Fourmile Canyon Fire of September 2010, the homeowners rebuilt on the same site as the original home. Capturing the views from Denver to the Indian Peaks, the new home, designed by Boulder’s M. Gerwing Architects, was designed as two large overhanging roof sections.

Cottonwood Custom Builders created an incredibly tight building envelope, taking full advantage of passive solar heating and cooling with expansive windows. A simple palette of materials allows Mother Nature to take center stage.
