The Nielsen residence is a remodel of a mountain residence in Evergreen, CO that is also currently on the boards. The client came to us asking to create vaulted space in the interior, improve the floor plan overall and to better connect the inside with the outdoors. They also wanted a design for their outdoor space that came off the back of the house and connected to their unique asset of their property- a beautiful creek that runs through the property. The house is about 4 ‘ above grade and has an existing deck off the back of the house. We modified the deck slightly and then terraced down to a stone patio where there is a fire pit, seating areas, planters, trees we re-purposed a shearing shed and made it into a covered area with a wood burning fireplace. There is also a semi private hot tub area that is close to the river.
