Low maintenance living

East Coast natives wanted to retire to Fort Collins but still lead an active lifestyle. The two-story Old Town infill home we built for them gave them a low-maintenance, energy-efficient jewel within walking distance of Fort Collins restaurants and breweries they love to frequent.

The home features a classic Old Town design with all the amenities of a 21st-century home. In-floor radiant heat, lots of built-ins, and solid surfaces keep the home cozy and easy to maintain. A four-season sunroom allows them to relax and enjoy the Colorado blue skies regardless of the temperature outside.

Lamar Valley Craftsman collaborated with Architect – Aubrey Carson, on this home project.

We consider ourselves so lucky that we found Barry Schram to build our dream house. Everyone told us that designing and building our own house would be a nightmare that would strain our marriage of 45 years. Because of Barry’s calm personality, professional guidance, honesty, attention to detail, and superb team of assistants and contractors, the experience was actually fun.
