Let’s create a summer retreat in the dry Denver weather,” were the instructions of a couple from Houston.
They had purchased a 1950s ranch, but wanted a contemporary style that took full advantage of the shaded backyard.

The house grew with a great room addition, but what really made it seem grand was the removal of several sections of interior walls and an increased ceiling height.
