The 88-year-old Douglas fir used to construct the home was salvaged from Long-Bell mill buildings in the company town of Longview, Washington. The Long-Bell mill was once the biggest lumber producer in the world. Robert A. Long was originally drawn to the region in Washington by the gigantic Douglas firs which averaged 150 feet in height and 12 feet in diameter. Many of the larger trees were used in the construction of the mill. The owners of Long-Bell Estate chose this wood, understanding its rarity, its mellow patina and its stability due to its age. During the negotiation for purchase, the owners realized a great coincidence that sealed the deal: one owner’s grandfather had been an employee of the company and a Director. Shortly after the timbers were purchased, Microsoft founder Bill Gates bought all the remaining salvaged timbers and used the wood in the construction of his homes. The Long-Bell salvaged timbers are no longer available. The owners of Long-Bell Estate paid homage to the Long-Bell mill in a carving by William Holtz of New Hampshire on one of the prominent cross beams in the Great Room.

6th FLOOR PENHOUSE SUITE, FLOURMILL LOFTS
One of Denver’s most recognized historic structures –
The Pride of the Rockies Flour Mill
Through archival photographs, the developer and architect found that parts of the flour mill had endured — and survived — a series of dramatic fires. Interviews with descendants of mill workers and research on mills of a similar vintage revealed some of the purposes of the mysterious holes in floors and ceilings that connected the mill’s many levels. Though it had suffered years of vandalism, some gears and fixtures had remained to bear witness to the building’s heyday. Respect for the mill’s history led to many discoveries that helped to direct the way the building was restored and modified — like exposing the original chimney on each floor. By uncovering and revealing this history, another chapter was created by carrying a piece of Denver’s industrial past into the present.
