Farmhouse Redwood Deck

We raised the roof on this farmhouse in order to replace blue ground to roof posts with redwood. After that we installed the beam (front and center), installed other posts to support existing (and weak) 2×6 beam, and installed joists as well as the stairs.


The 12′ staircase complete with railing and balusters dramatized the entrance to the deck 36′ redwood deck. I’ve zoomed in on the outside of the railing to show the exterior detail of the cedar trim, railing, balusters, and posts. If the color looks funny, it is. The homeowner insisted on Cedar colored stain on redwood, stained some of it before installation. If Redwood, used natural stain!

Colorado Living Space does decks.

Lyons Bathroom

We don’t often do bathrooms, but when we do, we like the outcome.

We reframed a closet to the left and framed down the ceiling to level, and set the tub. Then we tiled the shower with a cut out for soap, and a corner shelf (pic mid) as well as a back bench (seen in R pic).


We installed a window (pic left), set the rustic wood tile on the floor and tiled behind what will be the toilet as well as the vanity. Then, we accented the white tile with the darker color wall.



Art Studio Skylights

Demo (cover pic) included punching holes in the wall and taking out the original ceiling, which was flat. The frame was restructured (below) sistering broken rafters and including an 90 degree bend off angle from the existing ceiling making nice angles. This left essentially the same space in the attic for storage.IMG_1931

Then, we drywalled (pic 2) using the attic wall to reflect southern sun for the best lighting down on the studio space. (finish picture not shown)IMG_1936

Basement Finish (2,400 sq ft)

Mead, CO // January 2015

This family wanted to host internationals. Their basement became a space to house students and travelers year round.

Stage 1: Showing you framing of shelves (Pic 2), drop ceilings (Pic 3), and our 2-3 coat door painting process before door hang (Pic 4-5).


Stage 2: After painting, tile gets set in bath and kitchen. Lights and window sills are installed. Trim is applied to make way for carpet.


Stage 3 (detail): I’ve focused in on some sill, shelf, and tub details here.


Stage 3 (general): Notice the hallway lines, clean tile, warm carpet, drop ceiling, trim and kitchenette. When we arrive it was a 2,400 ft open square space.
