Greenbrier Court

Greenbriar Court, Boulder, Colorado

Not everyone gets to live with their work, but my wife Sherry and I, with some of our children lived there throughout the construction, which spanned 5 years. The project involved the gutting and complete renovation of an 1,800sf, 3-story townhouse All the excitement of changes and new spaces as well as the quotidian of dust and debris were our life for those years. This was a speculative renovation as an investment project for Sherry and me, in partnership with my brother, Richard Fleming. I did all the construction work myself except for mechanical/electrical. This is the 6th home that I’ve built with my own hands.


The exterior of the building, with the exception of doors and windows, remained unchanged; it’s part of a larger development and Home Owners Association that limits exterior modifications. But every surface of the interior was replaced and many of the interior spaces were completely re-designed and built, including a new kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, custom casework, etc. We also designed and installed a new patio and surrounding gardens.
