A once dark uninspired 1960s ranch house has been transformed by a 200 SF kitchen addition and a complete renovation into an uplifting home that now takes advantage of its spectacular mountain and creek side setting. A new gable roof over the kitchen addition with exposed beams, wood ceiling, large doors opening out to a patio and high clerestory windows allow the creek and mountain views to now be experienced throughout the great room. The kitchen incorporates a large island for cooking and socializing; a home office area; and a small sitting area next to a fireplace. The steep cor-ten gable roof over the kitchen and the inviting butterfly roof over the entry are a harmonious contrast to the original low pitched roof. A new detached garage with small attic office complements the house and creates an entry court. The stepping roof forms respond to the surrounding ridges.
