Poplar Perch Renovation

This stylish home was originally designed by local architect John D. Rogers, who envisioned a modern house with simple lines and exposed materials. When the client reached out to us, they requested an uplift and beautification of the whole space, including a full renovation of the interior as well as a new roof, siding, and deck.

The main goal was to bring more natural light to the existing space. We brightened up the interior by adding windows, replacing finishes, and changing some of the outdated and heavy wood trusses with smaller steel components. The most striking feature of this new design is the timber curtain wall from the living room to the deck, allowing plenty of natural light and showcasing the breathtaking mountain views.

In the lower level, the original unconditioned basement was insulated and refinished, and now it contains two new bedrooms and a full bathroom. The upper floor remains as the main level, with an open kitchen, dining and living room, and vaulted ceilings throughout, as well as a primary bedroom, with large closets and a spacious full bathroom. A custom garage, with a self-draining floor system and a full-size car lift is also located at grade on the main level.
