You're in luck... This house just recently sold, and the new owners did a pretty big renovation., and added it to the local vacation rental program.., so here is a link showing new photos of the interior. ( ) Also, notice we changed the front porch to a double porch and the new owners added a hot tub... - Kenny

I should add.., I was not really involved with the original interiors.., and wasn't involved in the recent interior renovation either.... (the main reason I didn't already have images featured) I don't believe the new Owners used a particular interior designer (as far as I know?).., but mostly did it themselves. - Thanks - Kenny

What is the color of the window trim, a green? - It's so subtle and slim that it is hard to tell from these pics - I have a yellow home with white trim and am about to choose new front deck and garden box colors and love this shade of (green?), and the copper brown accents!

Sorry for the delayed response. Yes, the window sashes are a dark forest green color. I'd say it compliments nicely with yellow. - Thanks - Kenny

what shade of yellow and who makes the paint?

I talked with the supplier of the paint. It is Anchor Paint. Upper Level Yellow is #7880. The lower level is difficult to classify... He said they "doubled the formula", to create a darker shade. The white trim is Anchor 620 white. Hope that helps! - Kenny

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kathryn added this to Looking at Beautiful Bay Windows
I love the unusual exterior of this bay window. The fact that there is an awning over it makes it really stand out. In fact, at first glance I thought that the window here was the front door! I also like the native plant garden outside of it which draws more attention to this pretty part of the home.
Architect Kenny Craft, who specializes in sustainable design, says "I am a big advocate for metal roofing. Because of the light color and reflectance, it helps to reduce heat build up in attics and finished rooms tucked into the roof. Metal roofing is also generally made from recycled content, and then, after its life, is itself recyclable." Craft chose a corrugated metal roof here, because it has a long history of being used in Colorado and adds to the vernacular-inspired style of this new home.
Community Spotlight: South Main, Buena Vista, Colorado This new-urban high-density community was designed around access to a prime kayaking spot, and it has attracted residents who appreciate a green, outdoorsy lifestyle.Green appeal: Walkability. Rather than needing to hop in the car for every little outing, part of what is so attractive about living in a well-designed ecovillage is the walkability factor. By placing the community within easy walking distance of daily needs like markets, shops and services — or by providing some of those things within the mini neighborhood, community members can skip the car (at least most of the time).
