The adjacent home is a true example of historic miner’s cabin from the 1890’s, which originally encompassed one large lot. A historic lot split was created by shifting the historic home over to create a new vacant lot. The city of Aspen’s historic preservation commission reviewed and approved the design requiring it to be contextual the historic home with a sympathetic approach to mass, scale, fenestration and materiality.
