House and Cottage

Uneasy way to a new home: moving, fire, wedding

The history of the construction of this house is amazing. It started with the fact that the old house burned down. Further events developed rapidly. In 2010, a fire in the Fourmile Canyon in Colorado destroyed 169 houses in two days, including the house of Fraev. Just a couple of weeks before Melissa moved to Evan, and they were not yet married. As it turned out, losing a home is a great way to speed up some decisions. After the fire, the couple decided to stay in this area. Evan and Melissa sold the old site, bought another (he also suffered during a fire), got married. The new house of Evan and Melissa was more modestof the past. Its area is 204 square meters. M, the price - 1.2 million dollars. It stands on high steel columns and is covered with corrugated refractory steel, which gives it the look of an old mountain hut. The garage, which has settled down to the house on the right side, is covered with the same corrugated steel shell. It perfectly fits two cars and several bicycles Evan. Special windows are designed to withstand the wind, which at the height of the ridge can reach 200 km / h. From the house there are beautiful views. In fact, for Evan and Melissa, this alone was enough to stay here even after the fire. Solar panels are installed on the back of the house. Heating and cooling are maintained from geothermal sources, so the cost of energy consumption is almost zero. From the workplace of Evan through a large window offers a stunning view. The kitchen is equipped with the same huge windows. If necessary, the windows can close the blinds. The bedroom also has many windows. One of them is huge (the whole wall), and the other one, which is opposite the bed, is panoramic. You can take a bath without stopping from contemplation of nature. At night, over the head of the Fry's spouses - the endless starry sky. The fire became for them not the end of life, but the beginning of a new, even more beautiful. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/27/greathomesanddestinations/earth-wind-and-fire.html?_r=1
