Nicholson Lake Cottage


Crested Butte, CO

This high mountain accessory cottage was remodeled into a timber framed, clay/straw accessory dwelling.  The owner wanted to convert the original structure into a “grandparent or nanny suite.”  The goal of this project was to build a healthy, highly efficient natural home using reclaimed materials.  This was achieved by installing triple pane windows, utilizing reclaimed siding, and superior custom carpentry.
