Beehive Basin Basecamp 2017

  • LOCATION: Big Sky, Montana

  • SIZE: 3,600 sq ft

  • STYLE: Montana Modern



Beehive Basecamp is a beautiful home in Big Sky, Montana that unfortunately suffered extreme fire damage.  We have redesigned the home to occupy the same footprint as the original home, including using the existing foundation.  There are many similarities but this was an opportunity to open the home to the beautiful landscape all around.  The client's favorite feature is the new corner window in their living room, which allows for an uninterrupted view.

  • LOCATION: Bozeman, MT

  • SIZE: 2,200 sf

  • STYLE: Mid-Century Modern

  • CONSTRUCTION: Renovation

The Blackwood Home was a ranch style built in the 1970's that was updated in order to match the owners' styles and to give them more space. Interior spaces were rearranged and walls were removed in order to create a larger feeling of space within the living areas. A small office was repurposed into a Master Bathroom and Master Suite was redesigned into a special space that connected to the outdoors. The unfinished interior of the garage was completed in order to add a spacious Family Room and Laundry Room. With the addition of windows throughout the entire home the beautiful view can be seen from every room in the house. 


It began with the cleaning out of spaces


Next Interior remodeling was made possible 


As was Exterior remodeling.


Although we are close to the finish mark, we still have some work to do.

Circle F Home 2018

  • Size: 5,000 sq. ft.

  • Style: Montana Modern

  • Construction: Estimated Finish Winter 2018


Our main construction has come to an end on this beautiful project located along Hyalite Creek in Bozeman, MT. Landscape is a major influence on the design of the project accenting the creek with the groves of trees which protect it. We create a strong connection between the indoor living spaces of the home and the natural landscape. The unique design of the home allows for a variety of spaces and simple approaches to construction. Structurally insulated panels ensure the home temperature is well kept and solar panels will help offset the energy requirements of the shop. With some minor tune ups and trimmings this home will be complete.

Convict Grade 2013

  • Location: East of Livingston

  • Size: 3,200 sf

  • Style: Organic Ranch Modern

  • Construction: New Home

Located along the Yellowstone River this home was built to resemble the Mountains that surround it. Finding inspiration through surrounding was a major part of this project. Facing the Absaroka Mountains inspired the shaping of the roof while the Yellowstone River is reflected through the curves of the building. Due to the home being previously lost to fire, this home was built to be fire resistant. With the addition of Durisol Block Construction and easy access to the outside through French doors this home should be safe from the wicked fire seasons.
