>> Custom Homes
CTS Engineering has provided structural engineering services on custom homes constructed in alpine environments since 1995. Each structural system is unique unto itself to allow the building’s vernacular to be achieved without sacrifice. The following links will provide you with brief pictorial and verbal summaries of some structures we have engineered.

Project: The Fuller Residence, Grizzly Gulch, Alta, Utah
Client: MFDS. Michael Fuller, Architect and Owner

The three level, 6,000 square foot reinforced concrete home is designed to withstand the impact of forces of snow avalanches and seismic zone 3 earthquake forces in addition to anticipated 200 pounds per square foot snow loads. The front glazing spans 28 feet from floor to roof and is designed to withstand 100 pounds per square foot horizontal loading loads. A cantilevered stair and walkway span the great room, providing access to third level bedrooms.

Project: The Thomas Residence, Holladay, Utah.
Client: Nick Schou Architect

This 6500 square foot home was constructed as a replica of the owner’s grandparent’s house, which was on the site but had to be demolished. The architecture is designed to express the Spanish vernacular of the original house. An addition was also added to the south end of the structure, and a an exterior courtyard links the main house to an existing pool house. The house included wood framed seismic details to improve ductility and performance of the lateral load resisting system.

Project: Levanthal Residence, Summit County, Utah
Client: Jack Thomas and Associates

The 17,000 square foot main house and 2,800 square foot guest house each presented unique structural challenges. The main house is a timber framed structure with steel bolts and side plates connecting the reclaimed trestle wood timber frame members. Lateral loads are resisted by moment connections integrated within the timber frame. Roof and floor framing members are composite wood sections.

Project: Levanthal Residence, Guest House
Client: Jack Thomas and Associates

The guest house is a 2,800 square foot structure ancillary to the main house. Built into the hillside and retaining 25 vertical feet of soil, the structure provides enough structural capacity for landscaping on the roof. The building is constructed with a concrete bearing wall, shear wall system, concrete and steel framed roof and floor. Interior trestle wood columns on the upper level support the roof loads.

Project: Dyer Residence: The Preserve, San Miguel, Colorado
Client: Cottle, Carr, Yaw Architects

Wood framed multi-level 6,000 square foot home. Designed to express the architect and clients desire to create a unique structure including a eight foot exterior cantilever supporting floor and roof loads; a steel truss spanning 48 feet designed by CTS with channel shaped chords and tube steel webs. The home also features a detached garage with flat plate roof sloping across the primary bearing lines at a 1 in 12 slope.

Project: Haas Residence, Aspen, Colorado
Client: BCS Group


The new single family residence is built on the eastern end of The City of Aspen just off of highway 82. The house looks out on to wilderness areas including mountain ranges and high altitude marshlands. The architect, Chris Beebe meticulously integrated the houses's floor plan, and site elevations to parallel the wetlands lapping at the building's edges. Timber frames supporting the roof framing over the great room are two story's in height, allowing the exterior beauty of the site to embrace the warmth of the home.
