  • After many years of rural living in the exurbs of Carbondale CO, our young family decided on a path to simplify our lives, and bring about a connection with community. This required moving into the boundaries of our beautiful mountain town. In town is where our friends, schools and small businesses would be close to home, and where we could give or kids the freedom to roam without a parental chauffeur service. This goal sparked the opportunity for me to fulfill one of my life’s dreams; to design and build a home for my family.

    After only 6 months of living in the home, it is safe to say that we have achieved simplicity and feel more than ever as members of a unique community. Our kids walk to school and my wife and I bike or walk to work. The neighborhood is swarming with playmates and some new great friends. Most surprising to me however, is how much I smile when I approach the home or we shut the doors in the evening and I can just sit back and love the spaces that I designed and built over the course of two years. The journey was one of the most challenging things I have ever done, but when I see how our lives have changed for the better, I would gladly do it all over again.
