I haven’t posted in a while. I have been focusing much of my work on 12 Dime projects as well as work on Denver Discoveries. I use this blog as my start page and realized that, though I love the last post, it was time to do some personal work.
Again, when looking for a good subject, I need not look far. Elsa and I were due for an adventure as well. It was Earth Day. Elsa wanted to be a fairy. Who was I to argue? Just bring the camera and let her lead.
It worked. Now I can look at these shots and remember a special day with my special girl.
Vintage Woods, a manufacturer of pre-finished beetle-kill wood products and 12 Dime Design, a reseller of high-end custom home finishes recently completed an awesome project on a custom residence in Boulder, Colorado. The residence was designed by Faye Crowe Architect and built by McCrerey Fine Homes and features siding created from beetle-kill pine with a brown finish. The beetle-kill siding is unique in that the manufacturing process acts not only as a sealer for the wood but also provides a wonderful antique look that reminds of old barn-wood and hides the tell-tale “blue streak” common in beetle-kill pine. The siding is available in barn-red, brown, grey and dark grey. These options create great design versatility and the raw beetle-kill material has the potential to be custom milled for any number of creative uses. The finishes may also be applied to other species of woods including Douglas Fir beams creating the opportunity for use in both interior and exterior truss work.
The project turned out great and the residence and the property made for some beautiful images.
