The contractor, Morgan Cate of Adaptive Habitats Construction, has already given the cabin a new roof, rehabilitated windows and a rebuilt chimney. “It’s not intended to be occupied,” Morgan said, “but restored as a lasting fixture of the landscape.”
The cabin is only one of Morgan’s local projects. He built a new home in Livermore for the owners of the cabin property, a project that achieved LEED Gold certification as a sustainably built home. These homes include the best possible energy efficiency and building practices.
Morgan holds a degree in construction management from Colorado State University and is currently working on a master’s degree. He has worked in construction “just about my entire life” and has experience with green building techniques, straw bale homes, timber frame construction and structural insulated panels. Projects have included high-end residential, new construction, additions and remodels, with a new focus on cabin and barn restoration.
Adaptive Habitats Construction specializes in design-build contracting, meaning the contractor works closely with the architect to make sure the design matches the client’s budget. Morgan also believes in great communication with clients to ensure their dreams are realized and goals and objectives are met. “Construction is expensive,” he commented. “You need to get the biggest bang for your dollar.”
The company serves clients all along the Northern Front Range. For more information about Adaptive Habitats Construction, contact Morgan Cate at 1-970-846-2533 (be sure to dial the “1”).
