B. J. 0. Nordfeldt House

Built in 1921 by artist B. J. 0. Nordfeldt and adorned throughout with his hand-carved beams and woodwork, the house sits on an open lot surrounded by mature trees and stone walls stacked by Nordfeldt himself. The house has woven a rich historical lineage over 100 years in its east side setting while being occupied by several different families. In 2019, we began planning the restoration and rehabilitation of this historic property along with the owners, Robbin and Alice Dawson, and Emily Pannier of Crested Butte Design. In 2020, we began the renovation of this centenarian home. With great care we restored and preserved the hand-carved beams and lintels. The interior finishes were selected to be simple and functional and not detract from the historic hand-hewn embellishments. James Dawson Design created many of the interior fixtures, counters and cabinetry along with others made by local artisans.
