Roxborough Colorado

Design Inspiration

After architect David N. Thermos and his family spent a few nights in a relative’s mountain cabin, his daughters thought that it would be fun to climb a ladder up to the attic and build a fort. This inspired the design for The Roxborough a 1-1/2 story cabin where generations to come can build memories munching popcorn and telling stories in blanket and pillow castles.

Where generations to come can build memories munching popcorn and telling stories in blanket and pillow castles. –David N. Thermos, Legacy Cabins

During the 1860’s, the early railroad, postal, and stage coach lines carved through the Roxborough, Colorado region on the way to the mountain mining communities. This Legacy Cabin Model pays tribute to the area’s industrial roots. Its eccentric roof shape replicates the historic mining structures seen speckled along the mountain range. This model design mimics internal functions of the mechanical equipment loft area found in these mines.

Cabin Design Details

  • The light shines in through seven windows totaling forty square feet of glass. Natural light spills into the cabin from every direction.
  • Two shed roof awnings on select windows provide shade. These architectural accents add interest and balance the visual of the exterior walls.
  • Drink in the view or gaze at the stars through the shed dormer located in the main roof.
  • The attic floor is approximately eight and a half feet above the cabin floor and covers approximately seventy percent of the floor area below. With access by ladder, it serves as additional storage or living space for all your fishing, hunting, and snow sport gear.
  • More than double the porch to one hundred forty-four square feet on this model when you take advantage of adding a second side porch, and thus creating an “L-shaped” porch similar to that in Cabin Model Number 6. It’s perfect for relaxing while you watch the sun set over the mountains sipping wine and listening to the crackle of the fire.
