Colorado City, just a stone’s throw away from Pueblo and overlooking the breathtaking Sangre de Cristo Mountains, is a quiet area comprised of rolling plains and panoramic vistas. It is in this southern part of the Front Range that Garry has lived on his 226-acre ranch for years. An Army veteran turned rancher, it has been Garry’s longtime dream to build a wood home on his property.
Seeking out the expertise of PrecisionCraft Log & Timber Homes, Garry hoped to create a simple, yet rustic home design that would fit in with the rugged peaked skyline. Another main goal of his was to also have the energy efficient capabilities to go off the grid. Having already installed two large solar panels on his property, Garry was looking for a building system that could easily incorporate structural insulated panels (SIPs) and radiant heating. PrecisionCraft’s history crafting unique, quality homes and their experience with energy efficient building systems made them a natural candidate and perfect fit.
Once Garry began working with PrecisionCraft, he was immediately drawn to the Wood River floor plan concept. A single level design, the Wood River included the open main living spaces and pronounced view facing elevation that he was searching for. Working with a designer from M.T.N Design, Garry was able to modify this concept to fit his unique needs, which included plans for a future basement.
From there, the construction phase of Garry’s home was a smooth process, with frequent communication between him, PrecisionCraft, and his contractor. Today, his 2,679 sq.ft. home stands proudly on a quiet corner of his ranch. With 3 bedrooms on the main level, and three more bedrooms suites set to be completed in his unfinished basement, Garry will have plenty of room for guests to join him for a visit on his personal slice of heaven.
