Elizabeth LeCoq Currier (cq) bought a lot with two rusted and dilapidated sheds along Coal Creek in Crested Butte for $140,000 in 1997, the highest price paid at that time. Because of historic regulations the sheds couldn't be torn down so she turned one into a master suite and the other into a bunkhouse and also added a two-story living space adjacent to the sheds that matched the look of the sheds pretty closely. The home has been featured in numerous magazines and is important because the project preserved the flavor of Crested Butte's mining history. The project took a number of years to complete and incorporates 100 year old ceiling beams and 300 year old wood floors. The floors in the new addition come from Virginia circa 1700 and feature a rustic feel with plenty of knots in the wood and a patina not available in modern day flooring. LeCoq Currier said of the wood floor, "I realize Civil War soldiers walked on it, people and souls and lives are part of these floors". (MARC PISCOTTY/ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS) CQ Elizabeth LeCoq Currier
