At the front of the house, there’s a small cut-out allowing a section of the wall to be used as a privacy fence. Behind the wall, there’s a entry courtyard that serves as a transitional space before entering the home and helps to keep the many elk herds at bay.

At the other end of the house, there’s a covered outdoor space that extends out into the backyard. A fireplace in the covered sections allows for entertaining in the cooler weather.

Design as a zen-like retreat from the city, the interior features high ceilings that make the interior feel large and open. Exposed wood beams and a steel clad fireplace add warmth to the space, while windows let in plenty of natural light.

In a hallway next to one of the bedrooms, there’s a small home office area. Built-in furniture and shelving makes the space suitable for two people and a window provides views outside.

The high ceilings also continue through into the bedroom, where white walls are broken up with a bright yellow piece of artwork.
