This home in the Flagstaff neighborhood of Boulder was in need of some exterior enhancements. Among the 1960’s era ranches in the area, you will find a few mid-century gems and we got the opportunity to do an exterior makeover on one. The owners have a modern aesthetic and the simple box shape lends itself to clean minimalist materials. The house is nestled into a steep slope and sits high up above the street, so it is viewed primarily from below. The massive wood staircase completely dominated the front façade and had deteriorated over the years. The siding was worn out and the exterior needed updating.

A very simple steel stair design and railing, an upgraded great front deck and patio, new wood soffits, and a mixture of wood, hardiepanel, and steel siding transformed this home into a modern beauty.
