Arvada House Demolition

Added on by Chris Gebhart.

Demolition has begun on the Arvada House addition and remodel project.  Demolition is an exciting time, as it not only marks the beginning of construction, but begins to reveal the intentions of the project. The existing one-story 1,400 sf house sits on a beautiful 43,500 sf lot in Arvada, CO, with good views of the foothills to the west, near Golden.  The site has a number of beautiful mature trees that provide shade from the harsh southwestern/western sun, and has space for the house to grow.


The one story addition will be built off the back of the existing house, seamlessly tying into the existing roofline, and will take advantage of the view to the west with lots of glass (shaded with an overhanging roof).


The existing house is relatively dark and compartmentalized.  The idea is to change that and open it up, especially from the kitchen area, out to the addition to the west, where there will be a large living space.  This living space will then open up to a large deck.
