Rustic stone and timber dwelling overlooking the Grand Tetons

This stunning rustic stone and timber home was designed by  along with design-build firm , located in Jackson, Wyoming. The weathered stones for the structure were reclaimed from an old ruin scouted in Great Falls, Montana. The home is nestled in a meadow of native grasses, with the Grand Teton mountain range serving as its backdrop. The property was once a working ranch, set along the flowing waters of the Snake River. The home was designed to maximize views of the Wyoming countryside. The interior living spaces encompass a living room, kitchen, dining space, master bedroom retreat, guest bedrooms and a sitting area.

The structure once served as a Hutterite dairy and milking station, back in the 1860s-1880s. The structure, which is now dubbed “The Creamery”, was disassembled stone-by-stone and moved to it’s current site, where it was then reassembled. With the exception of a few modifications, the building has maintained its original layout. Large and small limestones were strategically placed to visually define, enhance and accentuate the geometry of the structure. The creamery itself is connected to a second structure via a glass and steel connector. The second structure was built with reclaimed timber and logs.

The homeowners wanted their home to be a place where they could feel a connection to nature. To help enhance the rustic, yet tranquil setting, a landscape architect was contracted to install native plantings and rehabilitate the existing wetlands. The architect also added ponds and waterways near the dwelling.
