A Colorado mountain farmhouse is built with beautiful reclaimed materials


This mountain farmhouse-style home was designed by Dragonfly Designs, located on a thirty-five-acre property in SW Castle Rock, just outside of Denver, Colorado. The sprawling site provided an idyllic setting for rustic, ranch-style living. For the homeowners, they requested that their dwelling use reclaimed materials (the older, the better) and desired less fuss and practicality for their four children, two dogs, and muddy boots.

Wood siding was sourced from Wyoming, tin panels from Tennessee and military-issued metal bins are found throughout the home. The project team took the time to evaluate the function of the living spaces and created interesting details such as a double-sided vanity, and a kitchen that appears to be a combination of pieces that came together over time. The finished result is a home with warmth and rawness, without pretension, and the look of collected items that combine well.


Above: This woodsy entry is roomy and welcoming. A reclaimed wood wall, wine barrel chandelier, and rebar stair railing offer texture while white walls and a red oushak rug provide light and color tones.


Above: This romantic living room has a stone fireplace, vintage floral slipcover sofa, and tractor seat barstools. An antler chandelier provides drama and reclaimed wood floors and beams contrast with white walls. A large window frames magnificent views.


Above: This rustic kitchen has reclaimed beams, chickenwire sconces, a copper hood from Raw Urth, diagonal-set terracotta tile, and open shelving storage. It is rustic, warm, inviting, and functional.


What We Love: This rustic farmhouse provides warm and inviting living spaces surrounded by a magnificent mountain landscape. There are so many inspiring details in this gorgeous dwelling, from the material selections to the carefully curated design details. We are especially loving the light-filled kitchen with its two-toned cabinetry, large island, and functional storage solutions. A mix of styles and materials provides historic interest and creates the appearance that this home has been renovated over time.

Above: On the floors, diagonal concrete tile appears like terracotta, adding dynamic energy. The slate gray painted alder cabinets with an open tray divider and open shelves keep the space casual and functional. The other cabinets are distressed oak. Durable white granite counters function with durability and feel historical. Chicken wire doors adorn the upper cabinet that is suspended by plumbing pipe.


Above: An open dish rack in cream, and blue cabinets are flanked by oak cabinets that look reclaimed. Grain pulls and a sink curtain are rustic and casual. The farmhouse sink is a single basin. The open shelf storage keeps items at easy reach.


Above: These military-issue metal bins were reclaimed to use as drawers for produce in this rustic, farmhouse kitchen. Reclaimed oak was used to make the adjacent cabinet with grain pulls. Glass canisters make ease of ingredient selection. Very farmhouse and romantic.


Above: This bathroom has a vanity custom-made from reclaimed gray barn wood. A vintage bucket was made into a sink and the mirror is made from a reclaimed window. Industrial sconces are made from pipe fittings.

Above: Space was taken from the neighboring pantry to create a shallow art niche. This custom built-in allows kids to store and display their art supplies. Complete with a chalkboard, magnetic pinboard, and drawers, storage is complete. The cabinets are made from reclaimed barn wood for durability, and the shelf at the top displays current kid’s artwork.



Above: Upper loft bed areas are separated by draperies, each space with its own window. White walls, laminate wood flooring, and reclaimed timbers keep the finishes warm.
