|A glimpse of the home as you approach across South Willow Creek.
A view from the east with the reflecting pond in the foreground, the home sinks down into the surrounding landscape via berms and well placed plantings.
|Another view from the east, with the rooflines mimicking the Tobacco Root Mountains in the distance.
|A western view of the home, showing the main living areas as well as the fireplace terrace.
|A detail of the entry highlighting a handmade white-oak door provided by an artisan in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
|A close-up of the exterior fireplace and living room terrace. Broad overhangs shelter the home owners during any kind of weather.
|Another view of the fireplace terrace. The battered shape of the chimney becomes a strong vertical design element.
A view of the living room. The interior achieves the client's original request that the home have a "southwestern" feel, without being "southwestern."
|A look towards the master bedroom and office area. Floor tile from Spain, plaster from England, and native Montana fir headers blend together to give the home a distinctive personality and character.
|The kitchen area, looking back over the island. Floor tile runs throughout the home and concrete countertops gave us the exact "feel" the clients desired.
|Another view of the kitchen highlighting the cooking area.
|The stair at the front of the entry, incorporating rotary cut fir treads and a continuation of the plaster walls at the riser.
|A view a little further up the stairs. Kayte Simpson is a wonderful potter, and she wanted to include niches and pedestals on each side of the stair to display not only her work, but many other pieces from their collection.
|We combined slate with copper panels in the shower areas of the home to give a very warm and intriguing appearance.
