stair rails, wiring for home automation, and a zoned heating and cooling system with its own controls in the basement. The flooring is wideplank cedar and real stone. Douglas fir timbers, tumbled brick, leathered graniteâ€”which was dark, then sandblasted to take the sheen out and more closely resemble soapstoneâ€”and true stucco (offering very low maintenance) are all used.
Literally appearing as a luxury horse barn in a honeyed pine shade from the outside, this home located in Rist Canyon holds a delightful treasure inside. Everything within speaks of mountain rustic splendor, from exposed beams to an expansive rock fireplace, which alone took 940 manhours of work to painstakingly construct. As a rebuild from the devastation of the Rist Canyon fire, this home is an oasis, blending in well with the freshly-recovering forested hillside which surrounds the residence. A duo of trickling streams on either side and a pictureperfect pond out front form the setting. The interior hosts ghost wood (brand new timber that goes through a process to make it look 100-years-old) and stone elements throughout. The main section has a capacious layout, creating a significant vaulted chamber that extends out onto the front deck. A claw-foot tub tucked tidily in a bathroom nook and rebar railings salvaged from a previous job site are but a few of the special touches to be found in this haven.
