Sunset Magazine Idea House 2015. The original modest single story ranch home in an established Denver neighborhood was expanded to add a second floor including a roof top deck. The entire inside of the home was taken down to the structure and rebuilt. The original mid-century modern inspiration was carried through the interior and exterior elements of the home. Natural hickory floors and custom made cabinet and built-ins throughout the home for warmth. Interior design by CKY Design. Photos by David Lauer
