Flatirons Farmette

Location: Boulder, Colorado | View Gallery

Description: Nestled on a 2.5 acre sustainable hobby farm complete with chickens, sheep, an apple and peach orchard and topped off with fruit bearing plants such as strawberries and raspberries, sits a timber frame house that is the perfect mash up between woodland cottage aesthetic and modern Scandinavian design concepts. Once a working dairy farm built in the early 1900s, the existing home foundation and milk house structure were thoughtfully reused in the design of the new home. In order to preserve the historical character of the original property and to lessen the impact on the land, the beautiful hand-crafted stone structures were maintained and incorporated into the house and home office. The contrast between the light natural timbers and black modern detailing enhances the Scandinavian design approach. Painted black window frames, flat front cabinet panels, and usable lofted spaces in the bedrooms were well thought out resulting in a very intentional style.
