Photo Friday

My suspicions first arose when I drove up to the classic home in the Cottonwoods, designed by Robert McArthur Studios (Bountiful) and built by Dan Stewart and Tri City Construction (Draper). The proportions, mullioned windows, and stonework combine for a gracious Carolina Southern flair, and the pillared entry was...
All right, I may be a little late for Oktoberfest now that it’s the first of November. Perhaps my confusion is that Okland Construction, builder for Lagoon’s Biergarten, and Oktoberfest both begin with the same two letters. Or, perhaps it’s because of the recent photo of the Budweiser Clydesdales...
With our mountain location, most Utahns with a hankering for a vacation home won’t dream of a coastal cottage and beachcombing, but instead fantasize about a cozy cabin just up the canyon with cool mountain breezes and the sounds of chickadees. So, if cabins are your pleasure, I’m sharing...
A perfect building site is worthy of the perfect home. I think that’s what architect Hank Louis (Gigaplex, Park City) accomplished with this house. It’s set in Wisconsin’s northwoods. With the design, Louis acknowledges the forest with the front cabin-like elevation. It looks out to a pristine...
I can’t think of a better way to spend an early autumn day than being in Wisconsin’s northwoods, but it was even better to be next to a lake, on a golf course, photographing the thoughtful, innovative architecture of Hank Louis, head of Gigaplex in Park City and formerly...
There must be something about before-and-after pictures that allows us to see possibilities. Last week I spoke of kitchen envy and featured a kitchen transformation by Design Plus, Inc., of Salt Lake City (Kaye Christiansen Englert, FASID, NCIDQ, CAPS), and due to the enthusiastic response I am featuring another...
I live in an old home. In fact, in 2020 it will turn a respectable 140 years old. So, I am one of the first to find older homes interesting and livable. But I also suffer a certain degree of kitchen envy when I photograph homes, which is something...
Things are quieter in the Wasatch Back this weekend compared to last. Labor Day weekend marked Swiss Days, the Sheep Dog Trials at Soldier Hollow and the closing weekend of the Park City Showcase of Homes. Busy times. Park City Area Homebuilders Association sponsors the annual Showcase, and each...
A home in the Wasatch foothills looking down to the lights of the Salt Lake Valley and up to the mountains has been the dream lifestyle for generations. Fortunately, there are still lots available for new construction to fulfill this dream. Tri City Construction recently finished such a home near...
There was a time when a Utah basement consisted of a rumpus room and a couple of kids’ rooms, and the upper level starred as the entertainment space and hosted guests. As a Draper home I photographed this week demonstrates, there can be high style in the low level...
