Johnny & Janet Biggers (Owners of Crested Butte Builders); and a neighbor to the north.
Type of Project:
New Townhome Construction, with predominantly reclaimed timber frame.
Skyland Subdivision on the Crested Butte Country Club Golf Course.
Stand -Out Features:
Finely detailed craftsmanship of the internal truss system using reclaimed heart pine beams from a textile mill. The timbers were hand hewn. The cabinets, bookshelves and bench seats were built in. This was a unique property because of its wetland location and accompanying ecosystem of sedges, wet grasses, foxes, coyotes, mink, deer, fowl and other wetland species. The retaining wall adjacent to the wetland has a unique artistic design and adds to the character of the home.
The wetland location required additional approvals with the county and the federal government, such as a wetland delineation and accompanying plans and permits. The retaining wall, while beautiful, was not originally anticipated, but was required as a wetland buffer.
Crested Butte Builders was assisted by the following artisans and professionals: Architect Michael Helland, Altitude Painting, Dragon Sheet Metal, 2-Horse Electric. Small Time Tile, Redhorse Tile, and the creative craftsmen of Crested Butte Builders for their clever use of space with handy nooks and comfortable niches. Janet and Johnny Biggers designed the interior and selected the furnishings, colors, appliances, window coverings, etc.
My wife and I bought this lot in 1991 assuming it would be a good investment. Then we decided to build a townhome, so that we could downsize and live in one side. We love our home. My wife and I have lived in several of the homes that my team has built, and I know what I like when it comes to comfort and function. Our team incorporates many of the detail and design elements from this home into our clients’ homes, and these details do not go unnoticed. ~Johnny Biggers
