This peaked, hipped roof house was built in the 1920s by the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company at the Columbine mine northeast of Lafayette. It was moved in 1946 to 700 Dounce Street in Lafayette by Walter Vogl, a coal miner and RM Fuel Company employee. He purchased the Type H house for $450. The Columbine mine was located at Serene, Colo., which is now the Erie Front Range landfill. In 1997 the former owners began construction of a two-story addition but stopped with two-thirds left to completion. Doug bought the 1,700 sq. ft. house from them and finished the renovation, including a complete interior gut. The renovated historic structure and modest two-story addition show how a complementary, modern new space can be added to a historic structure without overwhelming or obliterating it.
