Used as a rental for years, Gregg Olsen, the owner of this 1960 split-level in Boulder, CO had a vision to add a second story to his home.

Mr. Olsen hired VaST Architecture to realize the extensive renovation on his home. And, as the folks over at Jetson Green sleuthed out, the home became so energy efficient, the winter electric bill was a mere $60!
