The Telluride is inspired by the rugged, timbered structures of the great mining towns in the Rockies. The core of the cabin is a tall relatively narrow hewn slab structure or “shaft house” which is surrounded on the three sides by vertical barn board sided “lean to” wings. The cabin is designed to set on a hillside, a natural drop of six to ten feet on a site is perfect. The views to the downhill side from the upper, main and even lower levels will astound you. The layout of this cabin incorporates many spaces commonly found in large residences into a small footprint.
