A 1500 S.F. house for a family of three, this split-level dwelling has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. The lower level master suite has a walk-out patio at grade and a ribbon of horizontal windows that frame an Aspen forest at tree trunk level. The upper level living space has a lofty viewpoint above local hills and tree-tops to the snow-capped Mosquito Range beyond. The house has quadrants of square-cut logs that recall settler’s cabins, and light stained beetle-kill siding that reference Aspen trees. Built on a simple 24’x32’ foundation the house provides grandeur and interest with economical means.
