After getting married in 2002 wildlife artist Edward (Ned) Aldrich and his wife Kerry set up housekeeping in Golden, Colorado. Within three years, however, they realized they wanted more land, so they moved to a home on a mountainside just west of Denver. The downside of their new home was that its configuration did not allow room for a studio.
Aldrich spent the first two years there working in a basement studio, then decided to add additional space to the top of the house. “Working there really spurred me on to get the addition finished,” he says of his basement studio. Working with an architect friend, he drew up a basic set of plans for a 20’-by-30’ space and then commissioned a builder to design and complete the addition.
