Ontarian transforms dated Colorado cabin into a modern retreat

When Jeff Moody isn’t working long hours in Toronto, he’s skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking, hiking, and relaxing with his family in his modern cabin in Telluride, Colorado. Originally built in 1980, Moody teamed up with Telluride-based architect Luke Trujillo of TruLinea Architects to bring the old log cabin to the 21st century. Moody loved the cabin’s rustic look, so Trujillo tore everything out but the logs and started from scratch. They added a second floor with a master suite, a giant wrap-around deck for summer entertaining, and plenty of windows to brighten the indoor spaces. The main living areas are sleek and elegant with enough space for après-ski drinks and dining. The end result is a vacation retreat that marries rural appeal with modern design.
