The “Open House” and Alamo Project Update
The plan was to open the home to the community in conjunction with the Home & Ranch Show – just a few blocks away. It was a gorgeous weekend to be outside in Durango, so we were pleasantly surprised with the steady stream of people who came inside to take a look. It was an opportunity to have lengthier conversations about timber frames, in general, and the Alamo Project, specifically.
It’s been a pleasure to watch our community embrace the spirit of timber frame raising parties, even when we veer from “traditional” events. Whether the intrigue stems from the aesthetics of a project, or a friend’s involvement, or even just indulging in the curiosity of a new building, Durango continues to show that the support of the community is a key factor in making a house a home. Thank you, Durango!
Building up to the Open House was a busy week of building. The final rounds of stucco were applied to the exterior.
On the interior, the drywall is nearly complete and we’re ready for texture.
For this particular home, there were two elements that were repeatedly noted as favorites: the interest the timber frame offered for the upstairs bedrooms and the upstairs deck that takes full advantage of the site.

This is a marquee event for the region. A big thanks go to the event producers and promoters, including the Durango Herald. Thank you to everyone who came by the Black Canyon Builders and Woodhouse booth. The primary themes for discussion were based primarily on: design flexibility of timber frames, cost and timber frame hybrids.
If you missed the show, or have more questions, never hesitate to give me a call. I’m always available to answer any questions and to set an appointment for a free site visit.
Thank you, again, Durango.
