Owner info

About the owner: We are George Forman and Judi Colby, we live and work in the Bay Area.. We bought the lot, thick with conifers, in 1999, designed and completed construction of our dream vacation home by April of 2000. We oriented the house and large deck to receive lots of sun and open sky, while keeping firs, pines, cedars, and aspens on the sides for privacy and mountain scenery. We love to x-country ski and snowshoe in winter, and hike, bike, and kayak during other times. The house is located for having quick access to those and other outdoor activities. Building a house in this spectacular location was truly a labor of love.
