Red Feather Lakes, CO

Nestled in the pines, the Faught cabin was a challenging yet highly rewarding design that fit an odd shaped lot between a house-sized boulder, a road and a golf course. The plan called for a narrow structure where a simple rectangle would not do. By utilizing a central octagon with light cupola as the gathering room at the entry, the master suite could be separated from the family. The main and natural course of drainage across the site was at its mid point, so by creating a bridge connector from the gathering room to the kitchen/dining, the flow was not impeded. Turning again along the site's boundary, the cabin took on an open “U” shape, with the guest bedrooms and garage on the opposite end from the master. Extensive decks help provide maximum indoor/outdoor connectivity for multiple sitting areas in which to enjoy the crisp mountain air and family activities.
